Day Use - House in San Francisco


Day Use extends amenities, programs and services to tamilies not eligible to stay overnight at our Ronald McDonald House in San Francisco during designated daytime hours. Any family with a child being treated at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital at Mission Bay is eligible to participate.

All Day Pass participants must register at the front desk by presenting a valid government-issued ID. A Guest Services Associate or volunteer will provide a brief tour of available facilities and answer any questions. As some of our House residents have compromised immunity, all visitors must be in good health and free of symptoms such as sore throat, fever, cough, runny nose, etc.

Day Pass Hours

24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
