Home Away from Home, Since 1982
We keep families with sick children close to each other and the care and resources they need.
Our 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 free lodging and support where families can be near their hospitalized children. We strive to create a space for families to find comfort in the midst of the chaos.
With our House steps away from Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, and two Family Rooms located inside of the hospital, we create places of respite where families can rally around and support one another. Though we are near Riley Hospital, we serve all pediatric hospitals in Indianapolis.
