RMHC Dayton is a home-away-from-home for families of critically ill or injured, hospitalized children. We exist to serve and sustain families when serious illness or injury strike the most cherished part of their lives, their children.
The House provides a safe and comforting temporary residence near local hospitals so families can stay together. The House is a place where they can eat a home-cooked meal, take a shower, do laundry, or rest in their private guest room; and all of these essential amenities are available just minutes away from their child's bedside.Annually, the Ronald McDonald House of the Miami Valley serves families from approximately 30 Ohio counties, 10 other states, and occasionally other countries.
We have been serving families in our region since 1980. We partner with all local hospitals that serve pediatric patients. The Ronald McDonald House serves an average of 500 families a year. In 2010, we served 498 families totaling 4,115 nights of occupancy, this includes 990 adults and 215 siblings of hospitalized children.
The average stay for House guests is 7 to 9 nights. A family's stay can range anywhere from one night to 90 days. There is no maximum stay.
Regretfully, in 2010 274 families were placed on a wait list due to full capacity.
