The Ronald McDonald Family Room Program is Expanding!

Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis is expanding the Ronald McDonald Family Room Program! A fourth St. Louis-area Ronald McDonald Family Room will open in the new tower of St. Louis Children’s Hospital later this year. Additionally, the existing Ronald McDonald Family Room at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, which will receive a makeover later this year after 10 years in operation, will remain open and focus on serving families of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) patients.

Ronald McDonald Family Rooms provide families with the essentials of home, just steps away from their child’s hospital room. These special spaces, which are open 12 hours a day and staffed by more than 300 volunteers, offer showers, laundry facilities, a small kitchen with complimentary snacks and coffee, TV, computers with internet access and a quiet area.


RMHC St. Louis is in need of additional volunteers to help provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere inside the two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Three-hour shifts are available for both individuals and pairs on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the volunteer form by clicking the button below, and a member of the Family Room Program staff with contact you with additional information.
