Mission Statement

To provide comfort, care and support to children and families in Southern California.

Description

We’re excited to announce the expansion of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California (RMHCSC) into West Los Angeles, and UCLA Medical has embraced us to pave the way. The first Ronald McDonald House(r) opened on October 15, 1974 in Philadelphia thanks to the vision and partnership of Dr. Audrey Evans of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Eagles' player Fred Hill, whose daughter had leukemia, Philadelphia Eagles owner Leonard Tose and McDonald’s.

Ronald McDonald Family Rooms help keep families close by providing an "oasis" within a hospital for parents with children in pediatric or neonatal intensive care units; allowing them a place to sleep, shower and recharge while remaining within steps of their hospitalized child.
