Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego CA

Founded in 1980, Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego provides a 'home away from home' to families with children being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions at local hospitals. Following treatment protocols and keeping up with bills is hard enough without having to find meals and a place to stay far from home. We help ease these burdens, take care of basic needs, and offer support to families as they cope with serious illness. We just opened a greatly expanded new House where we will serve 20,000 families each year, up from 3,500 at the old location. We now serve day visitors as well as resident guests with a comprehensive, first-of-its-kind Family Care Center. Our House is open to any family with a child in a local hospital.
