Ronald McDonald House


The Reno Ronald McDonald House, the flagship program of Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada, opened in 1987. The House welcomes families living more than 30 miles away from Reno who have a child receiving treatment at a local hospital or clinic. Through their five community outreach programs they address the health and education needs of children in our community. Those programs include: Travel for Treatment (1992), the RMHC® U.S. Scholarship Program (2000), the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile (2003) and the Ronald McDonald Family Room (2012). Since opening our doors in 1987, the House has hosted more than 7,870 families ranging from northern Nevada and California areas to international destinations.


Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada creates and supports programs that directly improve the health, education and well-being of children and families.


Their vision is a community where children’s health and educational needs are met with care and compassion. Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Nevada will help bridge the service gaps in our community by playing an integral role in meeting the health and educational needs of children.
