The Orange County Ronald McDonald House provides a “home away from home” for families of critically ill children seeking advanced treatment at local hospitals. Located near the Children's Hospital OC and close to other local medical centers, the House provides short-term housing and support services for up to 20 families a night.
The House offers every amenity to ensure families’ safety and comfort during a time of crisis, including private rooms, meals, and fellowship with other families who are going through a similar experience. The overriding goal of the House is to expand access to world-class, family-centered care for children and their families. The meals you provide bring love into the House, allowing families to unwind, de-stress, and fortify their bodies to be at their best for their child in the hospital. Groups choose a menu, purchase the ingredients, and prepare the meal in our full-service kitchen, allowing families to find nourishment and comfort in a shared meal. To volunteer, click here.
