We couldn’t do it without our community of supporters

More than a place to stay, our Ronald McDonald programs provide a comprehensive support network of housing, meal and psychosocial support services for families with children being treated for serious illnesses at our partner hospitals.

Our goal is to bring community volunteers and supporters together to ease the financial and emotional burden of families through in-hospital and residential programs. Although we ask overnight families for a donation of $10 per night, no family is turned away due to inability to pay.
