Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are an extension of the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland. A bit of home within the walls of a hospital, the Family Room is a respite where families and friends can spend quiet time together, engage in conversations or reflection, or enjoy coffee and a snack while still being close to the child's room.
Upon entering one of our Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, families are greeted by Family Room Volunteers who act as host or hostess of the room. Volunteers register visitors, explain what services are available, and help families to feel at home.
MetroHealth Family Room is located on the Towers 4th Floor near the Department of Pediatrics. Volunteers are scheduled for one four hour shift per week, or every other week. Volunteer parking is free. Hospital-paid TB test, criminal background check, and on-site training are required.
Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland, Inc. supports families whose children are receiving medical care at local hospitals. We provide affordable overnight accomodations in a home-like environment, in addition to other essential services and resources.
A Place of Healing and Hope. The Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland is a home-away-from-home for families whose children are receiving medical care at Cleveland-area hospitals. Most of these children have serious illnesses. Their families may have traveled a great distance to seek treatment, and are in need of an affordable place to stay.
The House That Love Built The Ronald McDonald House provides the comforts of home -- and much more. 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. This serene oasis was designated as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.
This year alone, the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland will serve more than 1,500 families. It 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."
