Chestnut Street House

The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House at Chestnut Street offers a home-like environment in the heart of University City.

Conveniently located near several pediatric hospitals, including The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, our Chestnut Street location provides a temporary residence to families with the comforts of home while also offering the support of the PRMH staff and volunteers.

Housed in an historic building that was expanded in 1995 to serve a total of 45 families each night, the Chestnut Street House gives families the opportunity to relate to other families receiving treatment for their children.
