How far your help goes...
- In 2018, our two Ronald McDonald Houses provided 9,423 nights of lodging to 884 family members.
- Last year, our Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles provided 4,254 patient visits to underserved children in Washington, DC’s poorest neighborhoods.
- A small staff of 32 full and part-time employees served our families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Why Sponsor a Family?
- The actual cost of a family’s one-night stay at our Ronald McDonald Houses is $200; but
RMHCDC only asks families to donate $15 a night for their stay.
- 58% of these families cannot afford the $15 per night fee. No family is ever turned away due to inability to pay.
