Whom does Cincinnati’s Ronald McDonald House serve?
The Cincinnati Ronald McDonald House is the third largest of 302 Houses worldwide with 78 bedrooms. This allows the House to care for 78 families (on average, 235 individuals) every day, who are welcomed on a first-come, first-served basis. No family is ever turned away based on inability to contribute to the cost of their stay. Most often, it’s parents and siblings who live at the House, though caregivers also include grandparents, aunts/ uncles and other family members. It is also common for critically ill children undergoing outpatient treatment to live with their parents at the House until they are well enough to return home.
