Share Your Family's Story

At Ronald McDonald House, our focus is on the family and each family story. The story you tell about the quality of your experiences with the staff, the volunteers and the House is really important to us. It can help us improve our organization and help us feel affirmed when we have been successful in our work at the House.  

If you are comfortable in sharing your story, it could also give hope and comfort to future families who stay with us. Your story may also be used to help the larger community of Northeast Kansas better understand the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities.
