How does this organization make a difference?

Impact statement

Families are stronger when they are together, and their presence helps a sick child heal faster and cope better. While we cannot make medicine taste better or take away painful treatments, we can help lessen the burden and ensure families have the stability and resources to get and keep their child healthy and happy. Our Ronald McDonald House is a home-away-from-home for families who need to stay close to their hospitalized child. Our Ronald McDonald Family Room offers a place for families to rest and regroup right at the hospital, close to their sick child. Our Red Treehouse program helps families and professionals connect to the resources they need to care for children with special needs or chronic illnesses. Between these three programs, RMH of Cleveland touched nearly 90,000 lives during 2012.

Ronald McDonald Family Rooms

The Ronald McDonald Family Rooms - a bit of home within the walls of the hospital, the Family Rooms are a respite for families to use while remaining merely steps away from their child's bedside.  Currently, the Ronald McDonald House of Cleveland operates the only Family Rooms within the State of Ohio.  Family Rooms are located at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital, Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital, Fairview Hospital and MetroHealth Medical Center. 
 
Family Rooms provide an area of retreat within the hospital where families and friends can spend quiet time together, engage in private conversations or reflection, or enjoy coffee and a snack while still being close to the child’s room. Each Family Room is equipped with a stocked kitchenette full of snacks and beverages, a dining area, a comfortable sitting area with a television, a play area for children, and computers with internet access. Some of our Family Rooms also include a private restroom, laundry facilities, and a private shower.

Red Treehouse - a resource for families and professionals to promote the well-being of children and young adults prenatal to age 25.
