The Long Beach Ronald McDonald House is a “home away from home” for families with critically-ill children. We provide a place to stay, a source of
comfort and care, and a chance to focus all of their energies on the one thing that matters most of all: their child.
The Long Beach Ronald McDonald House is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for the families of children facing critical, often life-threatening, illnesses.
In many communities and cultures, it is traditional for friends to prepare meals for their loved ones who are caring for a sick family member. It is an act
of kindness that translates feelings of concern into a tangible expression of human compassion. The families that stay at Ronald McDonald Houses are often far away from family and other support systems that would help them through a difficult time. The chance for these families to sit down to a home-cooked meal prepared by volunteers is one way that the Ronald McDonald House truly is a
“home away from home” for families whose children are critically ill. To volunteer, click here.
