Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering in the Ronald McDonald Family Room at Ventura County Medical Center. The Ronald McDonald Family Room is a special place where parents can find a place of comfort and respite within a hectic hospital, all while knowing their child is just steps away. Our room has amenities such as a kitchenette, a family lounging area with television, seating alcoves, work spaces, a children’s play area, and laundry facilities. 

We will be servicing the families of the children being treated steps away in the Pediatrics and Neonatal Intensive Care units. Your main responsibilities will be greeting and assisting families while they are in the room, light cleaning and organizing, and simple record keeping.

As we are located in the Ventura County Medical Center, all volunteers must meet their eligibility standards and onboarding requirements listed below:

  • -Application
  • -TB test (provided by VCMC)
  • -COVID-19 vaccination & booster
  • -Flu shot
  • -Background check
  • -Healthicity training

It’s important to maintain familiarity and confidence with our hospital partner. In effort to maintain consistency, we require one, 4-hour shift per week for a minimum of 6 months
