Planning is underway to build the seventh Ronald McDonald House within Southern California! The future Westside LA Ronald McDonald House will provide temporary housing and support to families with critically ill children being treated at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital. Families currently in need are staying at the nearest Ronald McDonald House in LA 20 miles away or are being assisted with hotels near Westwood.
Our House Program provides a “home-away from home” for families with seriously ill children undergoing treatment at UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital. While the sick child is just across the street at Mattel Children’s Hospital, their family is close by. Ronald McDonald Houses provide an integral part of the healing process, a place of wellness for the families, a place to rest, to make a meal, or share a conversation with another parent dealing with similar issues.
