Ronald McDonald House Charities
One Kroc Drive
Oak Brook, IL 60523
The mission of the Ronald McDonald House is to provide a home away from home for families of seriously ill children receiving treatment at nearby hospitals. The Ronald McDonald Houses is a comfortable, supportive lodging alternative for these families. Parents and family members receive a room of their own with beds, kitchen and laundry facilities, and toys for the kids. Houses are designed to encourage interaction among guests to help them cope during such a difficult time. Such services are offered for a small contribution; if that is not possible, no one is turned away.
