What We Do Our Mission

Our Mission

Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego provides a "home away from home" for families with children being treated for serious, often life-threatening conditions at local hospitals.

Our vision is to provide a welcoming and convenient home base where families can take care of their basic needs so they can better focus on what really matters: caring for their critically ill or injured children.

San Diego's Ronald McDonald House benefits our whole community:        

  • Hospitalized children: Children heal better when families are near.
  • Families: Parents and healthy siblings can manage challenges better when residing together.
  • Pediatric medicine: Hospitals require a parent to be present for treatments. By housing parents, we help to make long-term and advanced treatments for children possible.
  • Residents of Southern California: We can all feel assured knowing that we have a resource to fall back on if our children become seriously ill.
  • Volunteers and donors: Through their involvement with the House, volunteers and donors deepen their engagement in civic life and contribute to a stronger San Diego.
