At the Ronald McDonald House of Tallahassee, our home is filled with more than help, it is filled with hope!
Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured child; a long time to be away or to divide a family. Often times, children are facing a serious medical crisis, and nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support. The Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to call home so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little to no cost.
Our Home is built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child…not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal, or where they will lay their head at night to rest. We believe that when a child is hospitalized the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.
Allow Families to Face the Weight of Illness Together
Families are stronger when they are together, which helps in the healing process. By staying at the Ronald McDonald House, parents can better communicate with their child’s medical team and keep up with complicated treatment plans when needed. They can also focus on the health of their child, rather than grocery shopping, cleaning or cooking meals.
Allow Children to Get the Best Care
When your child is sick, you want the best care possible, even if it is hundreds or thousands of miles away. The Ronald McDonald House allows families to access specialized medical treatment by providing a place to stay at little or sometimes no cost.
