The Ronald McDonald House® of Cleveland offers a place to call home at little or no cost so families can access the best health care, regardless of their location. We allow families to stay together, which can help their children heal faster and cope better.
Our House enables families to focus on the health of their child rather than anything else – like paying bills, cooking meals, cleaning the House. We preserve a sense of normalcy with home-cooked meals, comfortable beds, and recreational activities for the family to enjoy. Most importantly, we help families create connections with other families, staff, and volunteers. In doing this, families have a support system to turn to during the most stressful moments of their lives.
Through our online resource, RedTreehouse.org, the Ronald McDonald Family Resource link, we support the well-being of Ohio’s families and children with challenges, disabilities, and health care needs. Our Family Rooms at local area hospitals are an extension of the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland, offering families of pediatric patients a comfortable space to rest and recharge within the hospital, just steps away from their child's treatment room. At our STAR Centers we provide a fun and welcoming learning environment for children while their family members receive focused outpatient care.
Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland relies on donors like you to operate our House. On average it costs $100 per day to allow a family to stay with us to be close to their child in the hospital. We ask families to make only a $20 nightly donation to stay with us. Nearly half of our families are unable to make a donation. However, we never turn a family away due to inability to pay. The average collected last year was just $10.26/night. The average family stay is 12 nights.
By donating today, you are helping families whose children are undergoing medical treatment right here in Cleveland - keeping them close when it matters most. Your gift will have an immediate impact on RMH families. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
