Apply to Stay

Apply to Stay

If you meet our Eligibility Requirements, you may apply to stay at the House by completing our online application or by calling our housing office at (206) 838-0610. Please only fill out an application if you are planning to arrive at the House in the next two weeks and meet our eligibility requirements. We cannot accept applications in advance of two weeks before arrival. Each individual over the age of 18 staying at the House must also complete our background check. Our staff will call you within a few days of receiving an application to confirm details about your stay. If your arrival date is within 3 days, please call our housing office at (206) 838-0610.

Our staff will call you 24 hours before your arrival to let you know if a room is available. We do not take advance reservations because we never know how long a child may need to be in the hospital. Therefore, we are not able to reserve or guarantee a room more than 24 hours in advance.

As our House is normally full, we encourage families to also call Seattle Children’s Guest Services Department at (206) 987-9330 or toll free at 1-866-987-9330 to inquire about other housing options.

Our Mission:

At Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington & Alaska, we support seriously ill children and their families. At the Seattle House, we provide a "home-away-from-home" to help families through a difficult time. We also provide a van service for families staying in Anchorage while their children receive medical care. Our IRS tax number or EIN is: 91-1061043.
