Living room at the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House

a safe environment for our guests and employees,
the House is currently open with limited occupancy.
Please consult with your child’s medical team if you
would like to stay at the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House.

For medical professionals: Please contact us to review the
additional restrictions and guidelines in place.

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.

Due to limited space and increasing need, first priority is given to families of children in the most critical conditions. First-time patients must be under the age of 18, and returning patients are eligible until the age of 21.

Please keep in mind:

  • All members of the guest family must meet LARMH requirements, including (1) having no current drug/alcohol abuse, (2) having no conviction relating to domestic violence or crimes against children, including status as a registered sex offender; and (3) having no open case with the Department of Children and Family Services.
  • All guests and visitors must be free from any infectious disease or physical condition that may endanger the health of other residents in a communal environment, particularly those who may be immune-suppressed.
  • The parent/guardian must be 18+ to reserve a room.
  • We request an optional room contribution of $25 per night, but no family is ever been turned away due to an inability to pay.
  • All accompanying adults must present valid, non-expired photo identification.

Our close proximity to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center means that the majority of our families are served at one of these partner hospitals, although we accept families from other area partner hospitals, such as Shriners Hospital, UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. 

To stay at our facility, please ask your hospital social worker to review eligibility
