Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms

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.

About Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Northeast Ohio

Location:

10415 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44106, US

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.

Description

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."
