We support children and families at five area Ronald McDonald Houses®, three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms® and two Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles®. Each night, we keep 153 families close to the care and resources they need. Allowing families to stay close to their child in the hospital supports the child's health and well-being while saving our families hotel and food costs.
