Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana is an independent non-profit organization funded by individual and corporate donors.
With your support, RMHC-CNI will be able to continue to care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing care, comfort and community in a ‘home away from home’. Our five Ronald McDonald Houses® help to accommodate 140 families each and every night, just blocks from where their child is receiving treatment.
On an annual basis, our charity provides over 40,000 nights to keep families together during some of the most challenging hours of their lives. On most nights, our Houses are at full capacity and the needs of our families are constant and very real. These families are our inspiration and what drives our dedication to our mission of keeping families together.
