Our Houses

Ronald McDonald Houses located throughout Southern California help families stay close to their child when they need treatment for a serious medical condition. Our Houses provide a home-like setting, close to the region's top hospitals, where families can stay free-of charge for as long as necessary.

Family Rooms

Our Family Rooms provide an oasis for parents and caregivers inside the hospital, giving them a chance to sleep, shower, and connect with other families just steps away from their child’s hospital bed.

Providing an Oasis in the Hospital

When families walk into a Ronald McDonald Family Room, we help by keeping families close to each other and provide some of the care they may need. Our Family Rooms offer a place for family members to rest, shower, and recharge inside the hospital, while being just mere steps away from their hospitalized child.
