About Cincinnati's Ronald McDonald House

Families from throughout Ohio, across the United States, and from around the world come to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center seeking life-saving treatment for their critically ill children. Often times, they come to Cincinnati exhausted, scared and financially drained as they struggle to pay overwhelming medical bills.

Our House cares for 78 guest families every night, providing them with a “home away from home” while their children receive medical treatment. In addition to providing a comfortable bedroom, we surround our families with love and support from our volunteers, staff and other guest families who share the same hopes and fears. We also provide home-cooked meals, activities, indoor and outdoor play areas, laundry facilities, computers and WiFi, and much more so that our guest families can concentrate on what is most important – their critically ill children.

Our Mission

Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for families with critically ill children while they receive medical treatment. We surround families with hope and support and bring joy and a sense of normalcy to children as they heal.

Our Vision

To offer all the comforts of home to every family with a hospitalized child.
