Ronald McDonald House Miami
Many families travel far from home and spend several weeks or months to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children - a long time to be away or to divide a family. And, for children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by for love and support. A Ronald McDonald House is that 'home-away-from-home' for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost.
Our Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child - not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest. We believe that when a child is hospitalized the love and support of family is as powerful as the strongest medicine prescribed.
Share a Night
Share a Night fund is a program that allows your generous gift to go to a family that can't afford our donation fee of $20 per night. The average family contributes less than $5, the House then makes up the difference through donations. No family is ever turned away due to their inability to pay and you can make a difference by allowing parents and children to focus on getting well together, during this difficult time in their lives.
Your donation helps Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Florida offer families a loving place to stay, as well as programs filled with comfort and hope.
Adopt a Meal
The Adopt-A-Meal program provides a much-needed support service to families who are taking care of their sick children, and often don't have the time, funds, or energy to prepare a healthy, home-cooked meal. After a long day at the hospital or clinic, a hot meal is a welcome gift.
Community groups, organizations and individuals are needed to provide meals for the families staying with us. Volunteers can either use the pantry items at the Ronald McDonald House or bring their own supplies to cook for as many as 30 to 40 people.
Become a volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House and help us keep families together! Our volunteers play a vital role in the day-to-day operations of the house. Whether you are looking for individual commitment or a group opportunity, there are dozens of ways you can make a difference at "The House That Love Built"
