There's Someplace Like Home

When families have to travel to Tucson for medical care for a child, having a place to stay should be the last thing they have to worry about. And because of the Ronald McDonald House®, it is. Last year more than 550 families called this House their home.

Kitchen Wish List

Our kitchen is currently under renovation, and we’ll need to stock it with pots, pans, utensils and equipment for our volunteer chefs and guest families. Don’t forget to choose Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Arizona as your Amazon Smile charity of choice so that Amazon will donate a small portion of your eligible purchases.

Ronald McDonald Family Room®

There’s nothing quite as stressful as having a baby or child in the hospital. The Ronald McDonald Family Room at Banner Children’s Diamond Children’s Medical Center, staffed by friendly volunteers, gives parents a place to rest and regroup. Away from the child’s bedside but close enough for comfort.

Keeping Families Close®

When Baby Erick was born to Raquel and Erick, he was so loved but so early. Born at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound, 10 ounces. Raquel stayed at the Ronald McDonald House for 76 nights, caring for her baby in the NICU, while her husband stayed in Sierra Vista, working and caring for their two daughters. “We could not have gotten through the three months without the Ronald McDonald House.”

KEEPING FAMILIES CLOSE®

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern Arizona exists to improve the health and well-being of children and their families. Through three core programs we create a network of kindness and caring for children and their families.

At the Ronald McDonald House, we provide housing, transportation and support to hundreds of families each year. The Ronald McDonald Family Room® at Diamond Children’s Medical Center gives parents a place to rest and regroup while their child is in the hospital. The new Ronald McDonald Care Mobile ® is bringing dental care to hundreds of children in Cochise County, who otherwise would not have access to a dentist.

A Grandma's Love

The Ronald McDonald House provides a retreat for families when the unexpected happens. When Dené was rushed into an emergency c-section, her mom Allyson was right there by her side.

How does this super grandma care for her family while so far from home?

Joy happens at the Ronald McDonald House.
It happens when moms with premature babies support each other’s journey and become fast friends. When volunteers spend their free time making sure families feel at home. It happens when a group of children donate their leftover lunch money to help children who are staying here.

Every month we put together a few stories that brightened our day.  We’d like to share them in hopes they will brighten yours.  If you could use a little joyful news (and who couldn’t?), we hope you’ll sign up for our e-newsletter.
