ORGANIZATION: Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Northeast Ohio

The Ronald McDonald Family Room at Fairview Hospital offers families of pediatric patients a place to rest and recharge just steps from their child's treatment room. The Family Room helps families stay strong to support their children by providing a comfortable lounge area with TV, kitchenette stocked with snacks and beverages, sibling's play area, private restrooms and showers, and two overnight rooms for caregivers of the most vulnerable patients.

The primary responsibility of our Family Room Volunteers is to maintain a comforting and supportive atmosphere for our families. Basic duties include:

  • Welcoming and registering guests
  • Providing information about support services
  • Restocking snacks and beverages in the kitchenette
  • Keeping the area tidy and inviting
  • Helping guests settle into the overnight rooms
The Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland highly values our volunteers and supports them with training, enrichment and recognition events.

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."
