Ronald McDonald House Charities of St. Louis provides a “home-away-from home” for families of seriously ill children traveling to St. Louis for medical treatment. The organization has grown from an eight-bedroom facility in 1981 to now include three Houses, eight extended-stay apartments, and three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms – one at Mercy Children’s Hospital, one at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and one at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. The Ronald McDonald House provides comfort, care and lodging for up to 59 families every day of the year.
