The Concept Behind Ronald McDonald House
Ronald McDonald House Houston offers a home away from home providing care, compassion and hope to families with seriously ill children being treated in Texas Medical Center member institutions.
This mission has been the vision and driving force behind Ronald McDonald House Houston for more than three decades. Today that vision has grown to include:
When a critical illness strikes a child, whether it be cancer, the need for a transplant, or other life-threatening disease, the nearest treatment can be far from home in an unfamiliar medical center. The treatment likely requires long periods of hospitalization and extended periods of hospital-based therapy. The only solution for many families is to leave their home, friends and family behind in order to remain at their child's side and stay as close to the hospital as possible.
