Our Relationship with McDonald’s
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana
Nurturing a Community where Children and Families Embrace Life and Healing
Walking the path to healing shouldn’t be done alone.
At Ronald McDonald House Charities of Indiana, we provide a supportive home away from home for families of children receiving medical care at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health and other area hospitals.
When families have a sick child, we provide comfort, care and kindness when they need it most. Our House provides all the comforts of home, plus a community of support, and our Family Rooms are places for families to rest during the long days of testing or treatment.
A dream to bring families together to rest, heal, and commune was realized when the Indiana University provided land to the cause back in 1980. Two years later, a 24 bedroom House was built, and the needs of families caring for sick children were validated. Just seven short years later, the House was expanded to 51 rooms.
Today, hundreds of families are served at the Ronald McDonald House and our two newly opened Ronald McDonald Family Rooms.
A place to rest. A place to find joy. A place to call home.
We keep the healing of families at the center of all that we do. Better serving them starts with understanding them, so whenever they visit us, they’ll be seen, heard, and always put first.
At the Ronald McDonald House Charities Of Central Indiana, parents, siblings, and extended family alike are connected and comforted throughout the healing journey.
Something Bigger Than Us. Something Bigger Than You.
