We care for families who are caring for their ailing child.

Since 1979, Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities has been keeping families close when it matters most. We have hosted thousands of families as they care for a child who is receiving treatment for illness or injury. In a time of anxious uncertainty, we offer a comfortable place to call home that is in close proximity to their child’s care facility.

Our MissionRed Stripe

The mission of Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities is to transform pediatric healthcare access and experiences for families with ill, injured or recovering children through a network of Houses, Family Rooms, Care Mobiles, and community resources.

Our VisionRed Stripe

Families have access to care throughout their child’s healthcare journey.

Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity & InclusionRed Stripe

We believe all families should have access to care throughout their child’s
healthcare journey in a community that celebrates the diverse backgrounds
and thoughts of each member in our partnership of eligible families,
employees, volunteers and donors. We strive to reflect
the community we serve.

Removing Barriers to AccessRed Stripe

Our mission to nurture the health and well-being of children and families seeks to ensure life-saving healthcare accessibility regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, socioeconomic status, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, geography, marital status, disability or gender identity.

Our two Atlanta Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Care Mobile and Ronald McDonald Family Room are committed to welcoming all families and removing barriers to access. Our commitment to family-centered care is validated by research which demonstrates that supporting the family results in better outcomes for the family and their child.
