When your child is sick, you want the best care possible – even if it is hundreds or thousands of miles away. Our Ronald McDonald House program provides a “home-away-from-home” that allows families to access specialized medical treatment at little or no cost. Our Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal, or where they will lay their head at night to rest. We believe that when a child is hospitalized the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.

The first D.C. Ronald McDonald House opened its doors in 1980 and we have served patients from Children’s National Medical Center, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, National Rehabilitation Hospital and several other area hospitals ever since. The 25-bedroom House offers four special isolation suites for our most immune-compromised patient and offers several common areas, including a family kitchen, dining room, library, game and craft rooms, laundry room, and large outdoor playground.
Directions to the D.C. House: The DC house is located in the Brookland neighborhood in NE DC. Two miles from Children’s Hospital and Catholic University.
We are proud to announce that our brand new D.C. House is Leed® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified at the Gold level. The LEED Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. Building “green” is good for our families and the community for generations to come.

The Northern VA Ronald McDonald House opened in January 1998 and is located on the campus of INOVA Fairfax Hospital. The NoVA House has eight bedrooms, two TV rooms, a family room, kitchen, dining room, laundry room, play room, and teen game room. The outdoor courtyard has a patio, playground and picnic area.
Directions and Parking for the NOVA House:
Our address is 3312 Gallows Road, but since we are on the hospital grounds, please use the hospital address of 3300 Gallows Road, take the Blue Entrance to the end (you will see the water tower ahead of you on the left) and beside you there will be a road on your right, take that road, go about 200ft and the Ronald McDonald House is on your right. It looks like a big greyish, green house with white pillars out front. On the front of the house, on the left, you will see our numbers 3312. You can park in the spaces marked reserved as long as you are here for the house.
You can bring or send an item to us from our Wishlist as an easy way to support the Houses. If you’re bringing it in person, ask for a tour when you arrive to see what we do for yourself!
