Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati

Helping families feel at home - even when they can't be.

Keeping Families Close

RMHC of Greater Cincinnati gives families with a child who is sick exactly what they need most – each other.

“When I think about Ronald McDonald House, they’ve not only been our foundation and shelter, but they’ve provided us the hope and the understanding that other people are going through things as well and together, we need each other. You try to make the most of it at, at a time that can be very scary and very difficult. Ronald McDonald House does a phenomenal job of making that possible and making those smiles happen. This House has provided stability for us in knowing that we have a safe place.” -Caryn, Camryn’s mom
