Ronald McDonald House

RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES OF CENTRAL OREGON

Every year, thousands of families travel to Portland and Bend to get the best medical care possible for their seriously ill or injured child. And for more than 30 years, our Ronald McDonald Houses® have offered these families comfort, support and a beautiful place to stay just moments away from their child’s bedside. Last year 2,041 families including 2,892 children stayed at our three Oregon Houses. And since opening our doors, we have provided a “home away from home” for more than 37,000 families.Many families travel far from home for several weeks or months to receive treatment for their seriously ill or injured children — a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having Mom and Dad close by for love and support. A Ronald McDonald House is that “home away from home” for families so they can stay close to their hospitalized child at no cost.
