Real miracles take real money. And your giving makes a real impact. Regardless of the world around us, we are there each and every day for families. Families just like all of those featured here, and the hundreds and hundreds of others who call the Ronald McDonald House or Ronald McDonald Family Room their home during the year.
Because of YOU and your generosity, families can stick together. Through the ups and downs of having a critically ill child, we want to provide a refuge and a home in every sense of the word. Families can enjoy movie nights, eat a home cooked meal, play video games or board games, have birthday parties, listen to music, have tea parties and play on the playground. They can experience some normal moments at a time when life is anything but normal.
Maybe one day, kids won’t get sick, but until then, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho is there for them. Thank you for being part of the community of support for these families. Our volunteers, our donors, our community…YOU make the miracles happen and help families stick together when they need it most.
Meet some of the families who STUCK together with us.
70 Nights at the House
“As far as the Ronald McDonald House, the importance and value that we found in the House are almost immeasurable because we got to be so close to Leah. Every day we got to see her, which wouldn’t have been possible if we weren’t right there across the street!”
18 Days at the Family Room
“The Ronald McDonald Family Room was such a blessing for my family while my son was in the hospital! The staff’s compassion and concern touched my heart and made me feel less isolated. Thank you, Ronald McDonald Family Room!”
98 Nights at the House
“Being able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House made it so that I could visit Jack every day while also taking care of myself to heal. I have to believe a small part of Jack’s progress was from me being able to spend so much time with him doing skin-to-skin time and just holding him.”
89 Nights at the House
“We feel like the Ronald McDonald House is more than a “House,” it is a home because they treated us like a family. They welcomed us with open arms! We are so blessed to get to know you, from the bottom of our hearts we humbly say THANK YOU!”

“What the Ronald McDonald House means to us…well more than what I feel I can accurately describe! The House was more than a roof over my head it was my safe place in a time where every corner I turned, hurt was tracking me down.”
