The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope.
Our programs include two Ronald McDonald Houses, two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, a Hospitality Kiosk at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, and a Ronald McDonald Camp.
Over 90% of our funding comes from individuals and corporate donors, and the remaining 10% is provided by Ronald McDonald House Charities. While it costs the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House nearly $90 a night per family to provide housing and supportive services, families are only asked to contribute $15 per night. No one is ever turned away due to inability to pay.

Keeping Families Together When It Counts The Most
"He's never been home," Brenda says of her son, Jayson. "He's spent his whole life in a hospital room." And Brenda is there with him, by his side for almost every waking hour of her day. Born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS), and until the day that Brenda brings Jayson home, she will stay at our House. "This is my second home." Brenda says "I can't imagine what it would be like without the Ronald McDonald House."
