What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Ronald McDonald House

Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill, critically injured or medically fragile children – a long time to be away from home or divide a family. Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Georgia provides a ‘home-away-from-home’ for families so they can stay close to their hospitalized child at little or no cost.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

It is the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Georgia to provide care and support for families of seriously ill, critically injured or medically fragile children being treated at area medical facilities.\n\nWe believe that home is any place where families are together. We believe that healing happens over laughter and bedtime stories. We believe that an island of refuge in a sea of chaos is as powerful as any medicine. We believe in keeping families together.

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Georgia provides care and comfort for the families of seriously ill, critically injured or medically fragile children being treated at area medical facilities. We strive to strengthen families by keeping them close in times of medical need and crisis.\n\nSince opening in 2002, we have provided comfortable beds, warm meals, hot showers, laundry facilities, internet access, and emotional support to over 8,000 families. When we opened our doors, we opened our hearts as well.

We currently have 28 guest rooms, a community kitchen, volunteers to provide a care-centered environment. We receive donations of food, supplies, and money to support our families. We are beginning construction to expand our facility to need the growing needs of families.

We have been able to meet the needs of most families, however, we have had a waiting list of over 2,600 families since our opening in 2002. Given this challenge and the expansion of our Children's Hospital, we have expanded our facility by adding 15 more guest rooms for a total of 28 guest rooms for families.
