About Us

A place that feels like home

Keeping Families Close

Ronald McDonald House Charities of Northeast Kansas provides a non-profit communal living home for families of ill or injured children 21 years of age or younger who are receiving medical treatment in area hospitals. Providing temporary housing in the eight-bedroom, historic Ronald McDonald House near the city’s medical community, multiple families can enjoy a home-away-from-home for the duration of their loved one’s care at an affordable alternative to corporate housing.

Since opening our doors in 1988, we have housed more than 20,000 guests from all over the world. We are the 112th Ronald McDonald House to open in the United States, and the fourth in Kansas, providing a safe and comfortable environment for our guests 365 days a year with friendly staff and volunteers.

The reason you come here might be scary and exhausting. We understand and want to help. Get to know your second family, here at RMHC.

Make a Difference for Families & Children
