Mission & Impact
Every year, thousands of children and families travel to receive care at one of Chicago’s world-renowned hospitals. Through our Ronald McDonald House® and Family Room® programs, we have been by their side since 1977, providing a caring and compassionate environment where families can rest and find support while remaining close to their hospitalized child.
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 believe when a child is sick, a family is sick.
We exist so families can get better together.
We envision a world where all families can heal together.
We put the needs of children and families first.
We collaborate with community partners.
We honor our heritage and founders.
We operate with accountability and transparency.
We invest in the growth and development of our people.
