    first-line: a place to stay close second-line: WHEN YOU NEED US MOST


​The Ronald McDonald House Akron provides a welcome respite for 20 families each night. Our families have children that are being treated at Akron Children’s Hospital (ACH) or Akron General Medical Center Special Care Nursery (operated by ACH). All the comforts of home are provided, including a private room and bathroom for each family that is stocked with toiletries and fresh sheets and towels.

The families share many comfortable common areas including a dining room, large kitchen, basement rec room, sitting areas, a private outdoor space and full service no charge laundry facilities. A hot meal is served every evening, and there is 24-hour access to the kitchen and fully stocked pantry. Coffee, water, soft drinks and snacks are made available daily. Hospital security provides no-charge transportation between the House and Akron Children’s Hospital.
