RMHCDC provides families with stability and resources so they can keep their child be healthy and happy.
We help families struggling with problems like how to stay near and support a hospitalized child, how to afford staying together in another city while a child is undergoing treatment, or even how to get basic medical care in a vulnerable community.
We provide solutions for these and other issues related to easing the hardship of children's illness on families through our three core programs:
- Ronald McDonald House®: The Ronald McDonald House of Washington, DC is located at 3727 14th Street NE, Washington, DC 20017. The Ronald McDonald House of Northern Virginia is located at 3312 Gallows Road, Falls Church, VA 22042.
- Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® in partnership with MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, operate two Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles. The KIDS Mobile Medical Clinic/Ronald McDonald Care Mobile visits underserved children in Washington, DC wards 4 through 8. The second and newest Ronald McDonald Care Mobile is home to the FITNESS (Fun In Teaching Nutrition and Exercise to Successful Students) Program. The Program partners with schools in DC, MD, and VA to deliver a curriculum focusing on healthy eating and the importance of physical activity to students in grades K-8.
- Ronald McDonald Family Room®: The Washington, DC Ronald McDonald Family Room is located on the Hematology/Oncology floor of Children's National Medical Center.
