Helping a sick child fight their illness takes a big enough emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it almost too much to bear. Our Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room provide compassionate hospitality to as many as 40 families of hospitalized children nightly and to nearly 12,000 day use visitors each year.
The Houses offer all of the comforts of home including restful places to sleep, spacious kitchens and dining rooms, entertainment rooms with play areas, libraries, laundry facilities, and computer access.
Volunteers from the community prepare home cooked meals for dinner each evening in our spacious kitchen and a well-stocked pantry provides staples for guests to prepare their favorite breakfast or lunch.
Families enjoy outings to Oklahoma City Thunder basketball games and other sporting events, the Myriad Gardens, the Science Museum and the Oklahoma City Zoo. Activities, decorations and special meals are especially meaningful to families who are far from home during the holidays.
Interaction with volunteers, staff and other guest families contribute to the supportive and positive environment, allowing families to focus on helping their child recover.
Our programs include:
Ronald McDonald House at The Children’s Hospital
Ronald McDonald Family Room at The Children’s Hospital
