A warm and comforting environment.  A helping hand.  Someone who will listen.

Every year, approximately 1,500 families stay at the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana while their children receive life-saving treatment at Indianapolis-area hospitals, primarily Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.

These families watch their children battle cancer, heart disease and other frightening conditions – the emotional, physical and financial stress can be overwhelming.  Their children will spend days, weeks, possibly months at a time in the hospital. The Ronald McDonald House can alleviate some of this stress by providing low-to-no-cost lodging and support where these families can be near their hospitalized children.
