Family Support Services
Family Support Services (FSS) is a program to provide support and resources to our guests, led by licensed psychologists. FSS also plans and manages House activities such as Fun Clubs, workshops, holiday activities and special events to provide a caring, supportive and fun environment.
Meals of Love
Throughout the week, groups from the community provide a complementary meal to families staying at Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House.
Kitchen & Dining
Kitchens, dining rooms and cafés are open 24 hours. Kitchens come fully-stocked with supplies to enable families to prepare their own meals or join in a Meal of Love. Each kitchen includes a communal “Help Yourself” section where guests can find donated food, condiments and Meal of Love leftovers.
We provide free washers and dryers, as well as complementary laundry detergent that can be picked up at the Front Desk.
The Exercise Room includes elliptical machines, weights and other gym features, with views of the East Hollywood area.
Our family room features a large aquarium, comfortable couches and a variety of DVDs, books and magazines for guests to borrow or take home.
Playrooms have games and toys as well as various video game options, and feature murals by Hasbro to help provide fun, kid-friendly spaces.
Throughout the week, volunteers provide fun activities for families to enjoy, such as arts & crafts, music lessons, baking & cooking, movie nights and more!
Furry Friends Animal Therapy
Research has shown that interactions with animals can positively impact a child’s health. Our program hosts miniature horses, dogs and bunnies, with every animal bringing smiles and joy to the families and children staying at our House.
We believe in celebrating all the milestones that happen at our “home away from home.” In a partnership with Daymaker and Rock the Party, we are able to provide every child staying at our House the simple childhood joy of celebrating their birthday. We also have “birthday kits” filled with celebration essentials as well as monthly birthday parties.
