The Ronald McDonald House program at present consists of 125 houses in the United States and around the world that are situated near children’s hospitals or large general hospitals with a significant pediatric population. They are owned and operated by individual charity organizations, but they are associated with each other by the Ronald McDonald Children’s Charities program. The families pay a modest contribution and the remainder of the funds are raised by volunteer organizations. One of the great assets of such a house is the interaction between the families, who provide a significant amount of support for each other.
