Adopt a Family

The Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Adopt-A-Family Program was created to help subsidize a family’s stay, allowing us to serve as many families as possible each year. You can “Adopt-A-Family” with a contribution of $120 for one night. Your donation of $840 will support a family for the average length of stay – seven nights.

Family Contribution: $20 Per Night

While the actual cost associated with housing and support services provided by our two Houses is close to $120 per night, the requested contribution from each family is only $20 per night for a room or $30 per night for a transplant suite.

Approximately 60 percent of families are unable to make any contribution — be it the requested amount or even $1 for their entire stay.

Average Stay: Seven Nights

Although the average stay is seven nights, many families are with us for weeks or months. Families save an estimated $230 per night or nearly $1,610 per week’s visit. For the 2,926 families we served in 2019, that was a total savings of about $4.6 million.

Families who have been devastated with medical bills and other expenses often cannot afford even a small contribution for an extended period — and families are never turned away based upon financial hardship.
