Our Houses

Since 1980, the Southern California Ronald McDonald Houses® serve as a inexpensive, and often free, “home–away–from–home” for families of critically–ill children undergoing treatment at nearby hospitals and medical facilities.

Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times

Each year Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times serves an average of 1,500 campers who are children with cancer so they can take a break from hospitals and find an opportunity to just be “ordinary kids.”

Family Rooms

Our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms provide an “oasis” within the hospital for parents with children in pediatric or neonatal intensive care units; allowing them a chance to sleep, shower and recharge while remaining within steps of their hospitalized child.
