About Us

Ronald McDonald House Akron allows parents to be close by their sick children, surrounded by a warm, peaceful, and comforting atmosphere that strengthens them during trying times.  Our House gives families the ability to spend more time with their sick children, to interact with their doctors, and to make important decisions about their children’s care.

Through the generous gifts from our community and friends like you, Ronald McDonald House Akron has provided a unique and supportive home-like environment for children and families in need since January 1985. Every night we provide the families that we serve with a private room and bathroom, community living areas, large kitchen area and use of our fully stocked pantry. Each evening we provide a complete dinner for all our families. Our services are provided with the minimal request of a $20 per night donation however, no one is turned away due to the inability to pay. We are privately funded and supported by a generous community.

If you are interested in learning more about our House or seeing it first-hand please stop by for a tour. For larger groups please call our office at 330-253-5400 or email Aristea at atzouloufis@rmhcneo.org to set up a specific time for your visit.
