Ronald McDonald House: Meet Our Leadership
Tax Help for Families
The Ronald McDonald House (RMH) provides a safe and secure “home-away-from-home” for families with seriously ill children. Located across the street from Nationwide Children’s Hospital at 711 E. Livingston Ave., families from outside Franklin County are referred to RMH for short and long-term stays.
Families are asked to make a nominal donation of $20 per night; however, no one is ever turned away for their inability to make a contribution.
To contact the Ronald McDonald House, please call (614) 227.3700.
In addition to comfortable bedrooms with private bathrooms, the House has fully-equipped kitchens with dining areas, a meditation room and gathering areas, play rooms, laundry facilities, and exercise facilities. Continuing care suites, isolated from the rest of the House, are available for families of transplant recipients and other specified conditions. Linens and a limited food pantry are provided, along with frequent group meals for the families prepared by outside groups.
Around-the-clock staff operate the House and provide assistance to the families. Volunteers support the families along with assisting the full-time staff with House operations. Day-to-day housekeeping tasks are the shared responsibility of families, volunteer groups and individuals.
Guests of the House are referred by Nationwide Children’s Hospital. Following a referral, RMH Family Services staff will contact the family directly when a room is available. Rooms are provided on a space-available basis with priority given to families of patients in critical care. There is a limit of four people (including children) per room. Family members under the age of 18 are not permitted to have a room unless accompanied by an adult.
