Ronald McDonald House of Dallas supports the health and well-being of seriously ill or injured children receiving treatment in the Dallas area by providing them and their families a home-away-from-home.
With approximately 60,000 square feet, the House offers 52 private bedrooms and six transplant apartments. Additionally, the House contains multiple playrooms for kids of all ages and interests, a library, media room, craft room, chapel, meditation garden, and outdoor play areas. Two large communal kitchens and dining room provide opportunities for the families to share the evening meal, which is provided 3 times a day by community volunteers, or to prepare their own food if they choose. Hundreds of volunteers support RMHD’s annual operations and fundraising activities by serving
families at the House, preparing meals, and hosting organized activities.
Although families are asked to contribute $15 per family per night, no one has ever been turned away because of an inability to pay. The actual cost per night to house a family is approximately $125— a cost largely covered by individual and corporate donors, community organizations, and special events.
Since opening its doors, the Dallas House has served more than 36,000 families.
