We’re so much more than a House.   

We’re a true home away from home filled with friendly faces ready to celebrate or comfort. We’re a craft activity, a music therapy session, or a therapy pet visit for siblings to enjoy, providing a bit of normalcy. We’re a warm meal shared between parents who just met but will be forever bonded. We’re an essential and critical part of the experience, and each of our Houses rise to meet the specific needs of families traveling to their community.  

We’re family.

Our Newly Remodeled Bend House

Our Bend Ronald McDonald House House, which originally opened its doors in 1997,  has undergone a huge makeover! The thoughtful upgrades, expanded number of rooms, and modernized spaces stand as a testament to our community’s commitment to providing a home away from home for families with critically ill children. Thanks to the 34 generous donors that helped raise over $1,000,000 to fund this remodel, families with kids facing serious health challenges now have an even more comfortable and welcoming place to stay during tough times. ❤

“Slumberkins Comfort Corner”

Presented by The Standard

Our families can now experience the magic of a Comfort Corner: a newly refurbished cozy room located in our Portland East Ronald McDonald House. Complete with comfortable seating and bookshelves containing social-emotional tools from Slumberkins (plush creatures, books, affirmations and more), the new Comfort Corner provides lasting emotional support for kids and families.

“In our moments of uncertainty, Ronald McDonald House was a beacon of hope, turning a difficult chapter into a story of shared strength and resilience. Our family found solace within its walls, and for that, we will always carry a piece of gratitude in our hearts.”

– RMHC Guest Family

Across all four of our Oregon Ronald McDonald Houses, we provide sparkling-clean rooms, well-stocked community spaces, and comfortable areas for all, and we are humbled to know that with every free night, we give respite and relief.

Hospitality à la Carte

Our Hospitality à la Carte program is one of our favorites, as our signature carts roam the hallways of our hospital partners, delivering comfort items and care to families at their child’s bedside. This special way of delivering our compassionate hospitality is truly a day brightener! And we are thrilled to say that in 2023, we proudly launched a RMHC Hospitality Cart inside of Peacehealth Sacred Heart Medical Center Riverbend in Springfield, OR! 


Sweets, treats, games, and necessities were delivered to 3,869 patients and families in the hospital in 2023

Because of You

Money raised here stays here, allowing us to provide a life-changing community of support for families. We are proud and humbled that the investments made by you throughout 2023 helped provide a record-breaking number of free-night-stays, delicious meals, innovative family-centered programs, transportation services, and more – proving to our guest families that even in the most difficult of times, we are family.
