ORGANIZATION: Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Northeast Ohio


The Cleveland Ronald McDonald House is a home-away-from-home for families whose children are receiving medical care at Cleveland-area hospitals. Our 55-family guest House provides hotel-like rooms, spacious common areas, beautifully landscaped grounds, fully-equipped kitchens, meals and activities so families can stay strong to support their children.

Like any house, the Cleveland Ronald McDonald House needs constant upkeep, cleaning, repair, and organization. Considering that our house welcomes over 1,300 families each year, our maintenance needs are multiplied! Are you handy around the house? Do you enjoy completing minor repair projects and keeping busy? Our House needs active maintenance volunteers who are willing to tackle a variety of odd jobs and lend a hand where needed.

About Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Northeast Ohio

Mission Statement

The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Ohio, Inc. is to enhance the healthcare experience for families and children through comfort, care and supportive services.


A Place of Healing and Hope.
Staying at a Ronald McDonald House enables families to focus on the health of their child rather than anything else - like paying bills or cooking meals. We preserve a sense of normalcy with prepared meals, comfortable beds, and recreational activities. Most importantly, we help families create connections with other families, staff, and volunteers. In doing this, families have a support system to turn to during the most stressful moments of their lives. We provide a safe, secure and supportive environment for families and have taken special care to help protect those staying with us from COVID-19.

The House That Love Built
The Cleveland Ronald McDonald House serves families with a child receiving treatment at any Cleveland area medical center. Centrally located in University Circle, the House is a short walk or ride from Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital, UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and MetroHealth Medical Center. In addition to 55 guest rooms, the House offers comfortable living and play areas, a fully equipped kitchen, recreation room, family resource center, children's playroom and laundry room. Surrounding the House are beautiful gardens, winding walkways and benches.

The Ronald McDonald House stands as a symbol of comfort and support, to welcome any family who might need shelter. It's easy to see why we're known as "The House That Love Built."
