Ronald McDonald House at Stanford creates a home-away-from-home and supportive community for families of children with life-threatening illnesses receiving specialized treatment at local hospitals.
Volunteers are crucial to the creation of a home-away-from-home and welcoming community for families of children with life-threatening illnesses. We could not provide all the various services to House families without their generous support.
The House can accommodate 47 families per night in private rooms and features a communal kitchen and dining room, Children’s Activity Room, Teen Recreation Center, Computer Center, family library, and fitness center, in addition to a selection of program offerings that promote a sense of normalcy for each member of the family. When severe illness strikes a family, it isn’t just the patient who is affected. Regardless of whether they are adult, patient or sibling, Ronald McDonald House at Stanford nurtures the whole family.
