RMHC Dayton is a recognized 501 (c)(3) nonprofit that serves families of children with complex and life-changing medical diagnoses and injuries. We are committed to keeping families close to the medical care they need, the comforts of home they crave, and the family members they could not go through their healthcare journey without.

The Ronald McDonald House on Valley Street provides a home away from home with 14 private guest rooms at no cost to guests. We provide home-cooked meals, on-site laundry, family programming and play spaces, among other amenities.

The Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at Dayton Children’s Hospital and inside Emmett’s Place at Miami Valley Hospital provide a space for families to rest and regroup without leaving the hospital. These programs are critical to our mission of providing community, comfort, and hope to families of seriously ill children so that they can focus on what matters most: their children.

Families stay at the Ronald McDonald House, or use a Ronald McDonald Family Room, at no cost to them. Supporting our Adopt a Room program with an annual gift helps bridge the funding gap and makes sure our doors are always open to families in need.
