is a “home-away-from-home” for families with critically-ill children, keeping them close to one another, their doctors, and needed medical care. The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California is built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal where they will lay their head at night to rest
At Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California, we strive to help families with sick children to face their circumstances with a sense of courage and hope as we provide them with the essentials needed to endure some of the most difficult times.At Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California, we express our mission through our programs, which include six Ronald McDonald Houses in Bakersfield, Inland Empire, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Orange County, and Pasadena. We operate three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms at CHOC Children's Hospital in Orange, CHOC Children's at Mission Hospital, and at Ventura County Medical Center. We are also planning another Family room and at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. A new Ronald McDonald House in West Los Angeles, at UCLA/Mattel Children's Hospital is coming soon. We are also one of the only Ronald McDonald House Charities chapters across the world that operates a cost-free, medically-supervised Camp for childrenwith cancer and their families, Camp Ronald McDonald for Good Times.
