What We Do

With your help, we provide families with better access to the care their sick child needs.

We help families struggling with problems like how to stay near and support a hospitalized child, how to afford staying together in another city while a child is undergoing treatment, or even how to get basic medical care in a vulnerable community. We provide solutions for these and other issues related to easing the hardship of children’s illness on families through our three core programs.

Ronald McDonald House®

Two Ronald McDonald House programs provide more than a place to stay for families who must travel far from home for pediatric care; they provide comfort, support, and resources just steps from the hospital.

Cart with a Heart

We operate Ronald McDonald Hospitality Cart programs in Children’s National Medical Center and Inova Children’s Hospital. Lovingly called, “Cart with a Heart,” the Hospitality Cart programs provide bedside amenities and comfort to parents and other caregivers while they remain with their hospitalized child.
