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.
