Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities
Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc is a 501(c) (3) no profit organization dedicated to nurturing the health and well-being of children and families.
The Ronald McDonald House helps keep families close to their children receiving specialized treatment at local hospitals, allowing caregivers to spend more time with their child and interact with their medical team. The two Atlanta Houses have provided a home away from home to more than 48,000 families of ill or injured children since the first Atlanta house opened in 1979.
At the Ronald McDonald House, families can enjoy many of the comforts of home, receive nourishing meals prepared and served by volunteers and obtain emotional support though contact with other families experiencing similar situations. No family is turned away if that cannot afford the small $20 requested contribution and many of these families stay at the Ronald McDonald House for weeks and sometimes months, while their child receives medical treatment.
