Providing a Home Away from Home

Families with a child in the hospital face economic and emotional challenges. Together with our partners and volunteers, we provide comfort, food, love, and a place to relax so they can focus on what matters most – healing together.

Ronald McDonald House

Free, private rooms in a comfortable house filled with love. Located steps away from Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health, but for families with children at any hospital, this is their home away from home for as long as they need.

Our Family Rooms inside Riley Hospital for Children offer quick lunches, coffee breaks, and places to rest during long days of testing or treatment.

Get Your Group Involved Today with Meals that Heal

Delivering fresh, heartfelt meals that remind our families of home is vital to our mission. Groups can work on a chef-led dinner or plan and prepare their favorite group recipe — and give families the warmth and comfort of home away from home.

We believe that food is love. We’d love to work with your group to help out immediately.

Good boy! Meet Mac!

Our Chief Cheer Officer loves all tiny humans and their families, and can’t wait to meet you. He’s a little goofy, pretty high energy, and completely hypoallergenic. If you’re staying at the house, come say Hi to Mac!
