Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington & Alaska supports seriously ill children and their families. It's something we see every day – children healing while they're surrounded by family.

What we do

Our House

The Ronald McDonald House in Seattle provides more than 28,000 nights of housing a year for families with children receiving treatment at Seattle Children's Hospital. We primarily serve families from WA, ID, MT, & AK.

I volunteer at RMHC because you can see the impact that your service has on the families here. Even something as simple as serving a meal of a kid's favorite comfort food allows me to make someone's day.

You walk in to this place, and you're just humbled. I don't know what we would have done without it. It really is home away from home.
