The Ronald McDonald House of Providence

Each year over 250 families stay at the Ronald McDonald House of Providence and an additional 1,200 enjoy the comforts of the Family Room.

We support families with children from birth to 21 years old who are hospitalized or receive major medical treatment at nearby hospitals.

The Ronald McDonald House of Providence provides programs that directly improve the health and well-being of hospitalized children and their families. Our programs allow families to spend additional time with a sick child, help ease financial burdens, provide a sense of normalcy and keep families together during times of medical crisis.

For statistics on the families served in 2013, please click here.
