Ronald McDonald House

Our home is filled with hope

For more than 35 years, we have been honored to offer families a place to sleep, eat and relax while their children receive medical treatment at one of the area’s nearby hospitals. Whether they live in a region that doesn’t offer the medical care necessary or they’re dealing with an emergency or accident while on vacation, many families spend several weeks or months far from home during their child’s critical treatment.

Hotel and food costs add up quickly. Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada House Program acts as a home-away-from-home for families so they can stay close to their hospitalized child at little to no cost. We believe that the love and support of a child’s family is powerful during their hospitalization, and work to remove the barriers that keep families from being close.

Services for Families

Home-cooked meals

Generous community groups provide meals through the Chef Program. Residents may also prepare their own food in our spacious kitchen.

Private bedrooms

All bedrooms have Tempur-Pedic beds and their own private bathroom.

Playroom for children

Kids can get back to the business of being kids within our large playroom.

Laundry Facilities

Residents may take advantage of our laundry room 24 hours a day. Generous donors provide all the laundry supplies for the families staying at the House.

Keeping your Family Entertained

We have a recreation room, and an outdoor play area with a fun playhouse to help keep your family entertained while you’re at the House. Wi-Fi access is available throughout the Ronald McDonald House.

The generosity of volunteers and donors makes it all possible. In return, families are asked to make a donation of up to $10 per day, but families are never turned away if they cannot donate.
