The reality of having a child sick and in the hospital can be incredibly overwhelming to parents and siblings. What the Ronald McDonald House is able to provide these families is a bit of stability in the midst of unthinkable circumstances. When a child is hospitalized, the comfort of having family nearby is beyond measure. It is this heartfelt purpose that both drives and defines RMHC of Central Ohio.

Our House exists because of wondrously generous individuals who have continued to believe in the power of love and kindness. The support we are provided means a great deal to our guests families. Since our beginning we have been striving to keep families together in “the House that Love Built.”
