For any parent, there is nothing more frightening than a sick or injured child. Realizing that adequate medical treatment may be hundreds of miles from home magnifies the stress of a child's illness or injury. A premature birth, trauma or an ongoing illness can force a family to travel far from home for their child’s medical treatment.

Ronald McDonald House offers a home away from home for families who must be in Roanoke with pediatric patients. Based on a priority system, families find a temporary home, a good meal and a friendly face at Ronald McDonald House, even when money is tight.
