We exist so families can get better together.

We believe when a child is sick, a family is sick. That’s why, since 1977, we have kept families together with their hospitalized children through our Ronald McDonald House® and Ronald McDonald Family Room® programs, enabling them to get better together.

Each night, we keep 162 families close to the care and resources they need at five area Ronald McDonald Houses and three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms. Allowing families to stay close to their hospitalized child supports the child’s health and well-being while saving families more than $10 million in hotel and food costs each year.

Our Ronald McDonald Houses are located near:

In addition, our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile program, in partnership with Advocate Children’s Hospital, provides medical care to children in under-served areas throughout the Chicago area.

We are proud to be a recipient of Guidestar’s  Platinum Seal of Transparency.
