About Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley

Location:

Located at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital, 1 Woods Road, PO Box 299, Valhalla, NY 10595, US

Mission Statement

Our mission at Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley is to provide a home-away-from-home for families of critically ill or traumatically injured children.

Description

Our new house will accommodate 12 families each night in private bedrooms with baths. The House also includes a fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, play room and lounge areas.

A family can stay at the House as long as their child is receiving treatment at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital. On average, a family will stay at the House for 7 nights; however, families have stayed with us for as long as 9 months.

Although our actual cost is approximately $100.00 per night per family, we only ask for $15.00 per night per family to stay at our house. We never turn a family away due to inability to pay.

Our House is accessible to our families 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. The office is open 7 days per week from 9am-9pm.
