Keeping Families Close

Caring for a seriously ill child is difficult, expensive and at times, terrifying. For more than 30 years, Ronald McDonald House Houston has been helping families with seriously ill children stay close together during these difficult times. By providing a “home away from home” while their child receives the treatment they need, Ronald McDonald House Houston is able to meet families’ most vital need for a place to stay while also providing opportunities to connect with other families facing similar crises. Together, we can continue to provide safety and comfort to these children and their families when they need it the most.
