We open doors to health care by creating a caring community through programs that directly impact the health and well-being of families.
For over 30 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Upper Midwest and our cornerstone program, the Ronald McDonald House - Oak Street have provided a home-away-from-home for families whose children are receiving medical treatment for cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. In addition to the Ronald McDonald House - Oak Street, we operate a second Ronald McDonald House inside Children's Hospitals and Clinics in Minneapolis - serving local families with a child in a critical care unit. Our newest core program, the Ronald McDonald Family Room is inside Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare, St. Paul. This program marks the first time our organization has supported local families in the disabilities community. Our community outreach program, the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, provides pediatric dental services in the 14-county metro. With your support, we've grown from serving 400 families per year to 4,000! We can't thank you enough for supporting us as we support families. We wouldn't be here without you.
