Ronald McDonald House

about our "home-away-from-home."


Many families travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children. Often, it can be a long time to be away from home, or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mom and dad close by for love and support.

Our Ronald McDonald Houses provides a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. Our Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.

Our Houses provide the comforts and conveniences of home for as little as $5 per night and no family is turned away because of their inability to pay.

We allow families to face the weight of illness together and to focus on the health of their child, rather than grocery shopping, cleaning or cooking meals.


The third St. Louis Ronald McDonald House and the 300th House in the world recently opened to serve families with children being treated at West County hospitals.
