Keeping Families Close
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mobile provides a supportive home environment offering care, compassion and hope to families with seriously ill and injured children being treated at area hospitals through our Ronald McDonald House and the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms. Our Ronald McDonald House can accommodate up to 38 families a night with families staying for days, weeks, sometimes months at a time while their children receive care. Our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms located inside USA Children’s & Women’s Hospital provide places of peaceful respite – just steps away from the child’s bedside.
Since opening our doors 17 years ago, our Ronald McDonald House has served nearly 7,000 families from around the Gulf Coast, across the country and around the world. Families are asked to donate $12 a night to stay at our Ronald McDonald House but no one is ever turned away for an inability to contribute. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mobile is a non-profit organization supported by individual, corporate and foundation donations – it is truly “The House That Love Built.”
