Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Central Valley provides a “Home away from Home” and resources to children and families receiving medical care at Valley Children’s Hospital. Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children – a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support.
Located adjacent to Valley Children’s Hospital, our 22,000 sq. ft. House is a refuge for families with children receiving treatment.
Each night 18 families call our House, their Home. Our House was built with the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child-not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. We believe that when a child is hospitalized, the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.
At our House, families can enjoy:
-18 bedrooms with a private bathroom
-3 wings equipped with a laundry room, kitchen and dining area
-Fully stocked pantry and private refrigerators for each room
-Playroom for siblings
-Large communal living area with small reading room
-Outdoor dining and play area
-A Day Room for families on our waiting list
