Families with a child being treated at Children’s National may be eligible to stay at Ronald McDonald House. A social worker must make the initial referral. Families are admitted based on available rooms and medical priorities. Each guest family has a private bedroom and bathroom, and access to a full kitchen, laundry room, living room, playroom and outside play areas. A $15 donation per night is requested but families are never turned away for financial reasons.
Please note, a background check is required for all guests over the age of 18 to stay at any Ronald McDonald House. If you have not filled out a background check form within the past two years, please call the Ronald McDonald House to speak with a manager.
