The Ronald McDonald House of Providence

Each year nearly 300 families stay at the Ronald McDonald House of Providence and an additional 1,900 enjoy the comforts of the Family Room.

We support families with children from birth to 21 years old who are hospitalized or receive major medical treatment at nearby hospitals.

The Ronald McDonald House of Providence provides programs that directly improve the health and well-being of hospitalized children and their families. Our programs allow families to spend additional time with a sick child, help ease financial burdens, provide a sense of normalcy and keep families together during times of medical crisis.

Keep families together…now and in the future


Create a Plan to Help Children and Families

At Ronald McDonald House Providence, we provide strength and support to children and their families by keeping them together when they need it most. Your gifts allow us to bring hope and help to children who are sick through our programs and family-centered care.

Many of our supporters choose to support our future through planned gifts. Unlike cash donations, planned gifts are typically made from assets in your estate rather than from disposable income, and may come to fruition after your lifetime. Even people of modest means can make a difference in the lives of children by planning a gift.

Whether you would like to put your donation to work today or benefit us after your lifetime, we can help you find a charitable plan that meets your goals. With your help, we can continue to make children healthier and happier by giving families a home away from home.
