More than 40 years of keeping families together

For more than 40 years, we have supported children and families through our Ronald McDonald House®, Ronald McDonald Family Room®, and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® programs.  Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland & Northwest Indiana® (RMHC-CNI) is an independent not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to care for families of children with complex medical needs by providing comfort, compassion, and a sense of community.

Each night, we keep 153 families close to the care and resources they need because of the comfort, compassion and community at our five area Ronald McDonald Houses and three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms. 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.
