Ronald McDonald House

Ronald McDonald House Charities Dayton

Your “Home-Away-From-Home”

Located across the street from Dayton Children’s Hospital and just minutes away from Miami Valley Hospital, our Ronald McDonald House provides families with many of the comforts of home, such as home-cooked meals, on site laundry facilities and private guest rooms at little or no cost to them. The House has a nominal suggested room fee of $15 a night, but no family is ever turned away due to inability to pay.

At our House, we provide many of the amenities of a hotel, at a fraction of the cost. And we provide so much more than a hotel by meeting the unique needs of families working to care for their critically ill children. We surround our families with love and support from our giving volunteers, from our caring staff and from other guest families. We also provide holiday activities, indoor and outdoor play areas, computers and WiFi, and much more, so that families can concentrate on what is most important – their children.

If you have questions or would like more information on the Ronald McDonald House of Dayton, contact House Manager Cara Arnold at [email protected] or 937.224.0047 x11.

Stay With Us

We understand that families come to our House exhausted, stressed, fearing the unknown in a new city, and financially drained from mounting medical bills. We are here to help. Learn how to Stay With Us.
