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.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati provides a supportive home away from home for families and their children who are receiving medical treatment at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center or other area hospitals. Ronald McDonald House Charities also awards grants to local not-for-profit organizations serving children through a portion of donations from McDonald's customers and Global Ronald McDonald House Charities' matching funds.
To offer all the comforts of home to every family with a hospitalized child.
