Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill
The pandemic has changed various aspects of how the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill operates. As an organization serving as a "home-away-from-home" for families traveling long distances for the medical needs of their children, they treat the health and safety of their guests with the upmost importance and have taken the necessary safety precautions to keep the families staying with them safe.
The mission of the Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill is to provide a "home-away-from-home" for families of seriously ill or injured children who must travel from across North Carolina and beyond for specialized medical treatment at an area hospital. Their vision is to care for families in life-altering moments, during the days and months that children spend in area hospitals. The Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill's programs will allow families to spend additional time with a sick child, help ease their financial burdens, provide a sense of normalcy, and keep families together during times of medical crisis. The Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill offers physical comfort and emotional support through programs dedicated to the well-being of the whole family. We are here to care for the families in life-altering moments, days and months that children spend in area hospitals.
