The Ronald McDonald House® of Cleveland offers a place to call home at little or no cost so families can access the best health care, regardless of their location. We allow families to stay together, which can help their children heal faster and cope better.
Our House enables families to focus on the health of their child rather than anything else – like paying bills, cooking meals, cleaning the House. We preserve a sense of normalcy with home-cooked meals, comfortable beds, and recreational activities for the family to enjoy. Most importantly, we help families create connections with other families, staff, and volunteers. In doing this, families have a support system to turn to during the most stressful moments of their lives.
Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland relies on donors like you to operate our House. On average it costs $80 per day to allow a family to stay with us to be close to their child in the hospital. We ask families to make only a $20 nightly donation to stay with us. Nearly half of our families are unable to make a donation. However, we never turn a family away due to inability to pay, so the average collected last year was just $11.81/night. The average family stay is 20 nights.
By donating today, you are helping families whose children are undergoing medical treatment right here in Cleveland - keeping them close when it matters most. Your gift will have an immediate impact on RMH families.
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
