Keeping Families Close

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Dayton® provides a “home away from home” Keeping Families Close™ to their critically ill or injured children receiving medical treatment. In addition to providing a comfortable bedroom, we surround our families with love and support from our volunteers, staff and other guest families who share the same hopes and fears.

We also provide home-cooked meals, activities, indoor and outdoor play areas, laundry facilities, computers and WiFi, and much more so that our guest families can concentrate on what is most important – their critically ill children.
