Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis provides a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill children, and support to organizations that serve the needs of children.

St. Louis’ three Ronald McDonald Houses offer parents and family members a respite from hospital waiting rooms 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. Our Houses provide the essential comforts of home: comfortable beds, hot showers, home-cooked meals, kitchen and laundry facilities and more.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis also serves local families through our four Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, which are located inside three pediatric hospitals: Mercy Children’s Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. These rooms provide many of the same comforts as the Ronald McDonald Houses, including hot showers, laundry facilities, snacks, Internet access and television. Here, families can take a break from the hustle and bustle of hospital corridors.
