Keeping families close®

RMHC® Northeast Ohio gives a family with a sick child what they need most — each other.

We believe when a child receives care, family needs to be there.

That’s why we help families stay together and near their hospitalized children in our Ronald McDonald House® and Ronald McDonald Family Room® programs.

We believe all families deserve access to quality care.

That’s why we help to reduce barriers, providing a comfortable place to stay at no cost to families. It’s why we bring dental care to children with our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile®, offer a fun STAR Center learning environment while siblings receive outpatient care, and connections to resources through RedTreehouse.org.

Please join us.
