At Ronald McDonald House Charities in Omaha, we're for the fighters.
The caregivers. The ones who have packed up their families and sick kiddos, traveled hundreds of miles to an unfamiliar city, skipped meals, lost sleep, cried silently, fought ferociously and hoped for the best even when faced with the worst.
This House is a place where caregivers can refuel for the fight ahead with nutritious meals and restful sleep, play areas and quiet nooks; a place where they can rally around hope alongside fellow fighters. And a place that the Omaha community can rally around too.
Our mission is to create and operate programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children. We strive to do so by providing opportunities that strengthen children and families during their most difficult and challenging times.
