About Us

Serving Houston for Over 40 Years

In 2024, the two Ronald McDonald House entities serving our region for the past four decades united as one. Ronald McDonald House Houston and Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Houston/Galveston merged to become Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Houston.

Our Mission

The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities Greater Houston is to provide a supportive home away from home for families of seriously ill children receiving medical care at area hospitals. By easing the financial and emotional burdens and taking care of important practical needs, Ronald McDonald House allows families to focus on what truly matters most, caring for their child.

Other services include our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, JoyFULL Eats meal program and comprehensive wrap-around care that provides a supportive network of resources to families of children receiving treatment for pediatric illnesses in the Texas Medical Center.

Our Impact

Each year our Ronald McDonald House programs serve as a home away from home for hundreds of families from around the country and world. In a typical year, we host over 28,000 overnight family stays for more than 1500 families as their children seek essential healthcare. With the help of our generous donors and supporters, we provide more than 250,000 meal and snack servings and help our families save millions in hotel, food and transportation costs annually.

Give the gift of togetherness.

We believe families are stronger when they battle a medical crisis together. With your help we can keep family members close to each other, and steps from their child’s medical treatment.
