RMHCA provides a safe, affordable, supportive “home-away-from-home” for families of sick or injured children when they travel to Birmingham

Twenty-four (24) hours a day, 365 days each year, the doors of the Ronald McDonald House open to welcome families of sick or injured children.

On any night, open the door of the House. You probably will find 41 families and approximately 100 individual guests resting in cozy family bedrooms, cooking, laundry, recreational and internet facilities, and welcoming dinners prepared by House volunteers. Birmingham's Ronald McDonald House charges just $5 to $10 per night for services that cost more than $65 per night to provide. Last year, the House provided over 1,200 guest stays; an estimated 33,000 stays since the House opened in 1979.
