Who We Are
Detroit now has a home-away-from home and support services to parents with hospitalized children: the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit.
Our 16,000 square foot building has 25 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms. There are four “TV” rooms, an exercise room, quiet area, indoor and outdoor playrooms, phone booths, dining room and kitchen. It accommodates more than 1,000 families a year.
Sometimes family members find themselves in a strange city without the comforting support of friends and relatives. When this happens, a parent may feel fear and defeat — at a time when the child needs the courage and love only a family member can provide. That’s where RMH/Detroit comes in ….
Having family members close by has often proved to be the best medicine for a seriously ill child. But mom, dad, sister and brother can’t be there if they must pay for an expensive hotel and meal costs for weeks or months. RMH/Detroit can help.
The only way we can operate is through our wonderful volunteers and our great staffers, so please check out their pages. You can also find out more about our history, or how you can help. Or, about the
events we have to help fund the house.
By supporting the House, you provide a safe, secure and affordable haven for hundreds of parents and sick children each year. To learn about how you can help the children and families at the Ronald McDonald House, call 313.745.5909, or send an email to our Executive Director.
