In response to the ever-changing landscape involving COVID-19, our Ronald McDonald House will temporarily stop scheduling families starting Saturday, March 21st. The restriction will continue for at least 21 days, but maybe extended further.

 Our Ronald McDonald House will continue providing compassionate hospitality to our current guests while practicing social distancing. We do not have plans to ask current families to leave, other than their normal departure date, and we will honor extensions submitted by our medical partners.

We are closely monitoring this situation to ensure the steps we take to address COVID-19 are in the best interest of our employees and the families we serve. We will continue to follow the guidance of Ronald McDonald House Charities Global, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and our trusted medical partners.


Thank you for your interest in referring a family to the Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House. Since our opening, the Inland Empire Ronald McDonald House has worked closely with medical partners to provide housing, comfort, care, and support to families receiving medical treatment in the Inland Empire.

In order to refer a family, they must meet the following criteria:

  • The patient must be newborn to 17 years of age, however, 18 to 21 years of age will be considered based on room availability.
  • The patient must be currently receiving active inpatient or outpatient medical treatment
  • There is no mileage restriction, however, based on the number of requests, occupancy availability, distance and diagnosis, families that live close to the hospital may experience a longer wait time.

Please Note: A room request does not guarantee a reservation, but we do our very best to accommodate everyone. Same day requests are welcome. The Room Referral must come from the hospital social worker.

We will also discuss the following with the family:

  • California Children’s Services Eligibility and their possible assistance with the daily room contribution.
  • We request to see  a valid, non-expired photo identification for any adult, over the age of 18, staying at the Ronald McDonald House.
