About Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Greater Washington, DC (RMHCDC)

Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Greater Washington, DC, a non-profit, 501 © (3), eases the hardship of children’s illness on families through programs that directly improve the health and wellbeing of children. Through its three core programs: two Ronald McDonald Houses®, two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms®, and two Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles® in partnership with Medstar Georgetown University Hospital: the KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic/Ronald McDonald Care Moblie® and the new unit, home to the FITNESS (Fun in Teaching Nutrition and Exercise to Successful Students) Program; RMHCDC gives children access to quality health care and their families the ability to better comfort and support them while actively participating in their care.

Did You Know?

How far your help goes... 

  • In 2016, our two Ronald McDonald Houses provided 9,650 nights of lodging to 958 family members.
  • Last year, our KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic/Ronald McDonald Care Mobile provided 1,158 patient visits to underserved children in Washington, DC’s poorest neighborhoods.
  • A small staff of 32 full and part-time employees served our families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Why Sponsor a Family?

  • The actual cost of a family’s one-night stay at our Ronald McDonald Houses is $197; but
    RMHCDC only asks families to donate $15 a night for their stay.
  • 60% of these families cannot afford the $15 per night fee. No family is ever turned away due to inability to pay.
