We are proud to be one of the few Houses in the country to provide three meals a day, every day of the year. Starting June 14th, we are allowing groups of 6 to come in and cook lunch for our families. Your group would plan the meal, buy the ingredients, bring it to the house to cook it, serve, and do the cleanup. We are currently only allowing lunch groups to come in and prepare a meal. Lunch is served from 12-1 p.m. Groups typically show up a couple hours before, around 10:00-10:30 a.m., to ensure they have enough time to prepare and cook the food. We are allowing up to 6 individuals per group and each member must bring proof of immunization along with a valid driver's license. We serve immunocompromised kiddos, so this is extremely important. Please email Taylor Hardin at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or for open dates!!
The Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, Inc. serves as a "home-away-from-home" for families of seriously ill children who are hospitalized or receiving treatment in Dallas area hospitals. The House maintains a caring homelike atmosphere and provides a place where families receive strength and stability from others who share similar concerns.
With approximately 78,000 square feet, the House offers 89 private bedrooms and six transplant apartments. Additionally, the House contains multiple playrooms for kids of all ages and interests, a library, media room, craft room, chapel, meditation garden, and outdoor play areas. Two large communal kitchens and dining room provide opportunities for the families to share the evening meal, which is provided 3 times a day by community volunteers, or to prepare their own food if they choose. There is also a Day Respite Room which offers families of hospitalized children a place to rest and regroup away from the stress of the hospital but do not need an overnight stay.
Hundreds of volunteers support RMHD’s annual operations and fundraising activities by serving families at the House, preparing meals, and hosting organized activities.
Since opening its doors, the Dallas House has served more than 40,000 families. The average cost per night to house a family is approximately $100 - a cost largely covered by individual and corporate donors, community organizations, and special events.
