About Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region


3925 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104, US

Mission Statement

Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philadelphia Region supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope.


Our two Ronald McDonald Houses provide temporary lodging, transportation, meals, and social services to families who travel to Philadelphia for pediatric care. Our three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms extend the support of our Houses into the hospital setting and offer a quiet respite space for families at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. Ronald McDonald Camp is a week-long overnight camp for children with cancer and their siblings held in the Pocono Mountains every August. The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, operated in partnership with St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children, provides comprehensive and continuous oral healthcare to children in North Philadelphia.

Founded in 1974 as the first Ronald McDonald House, RMHC Philly has grown from a single idea to the model for over 380 Houses and programs worldwide.
