Facts (via Ronald McDonald House)
Over 60% of the families who stay with us had no idea that they would need our services just 24 hours prior to arriving. Many arriving via helicopter or ambulance. Approximately 57% of the families staying with us are here with a premature infant or newborn with complications, 13% to receive specialized oncology treatment for their children, and 30% due to trauma or another illness.
Families are able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House free of charge thanks to the generosity of our community. The average length of stay is 26 days.
