  • Mission


    Welcome to the Ronald McDonald House of San Francisco!

    The Ronald McDonald House of San Francisco, Inc. (RMH-SF) provides a safe haven for critically ill children and their families.

    We believe in the importance of helping families stay together during the critical illness of a child. We offer a home away from home, home-cooked meals and supportive services for families while their children receive specialized medical treatment in San Francisco hospitals.

    At Ronald McDonald House, family members draw strength and comfort from a caring community of staff, volunteers and families like themselves, coping with their child’s illness. We also take “the best of Ronald McDonald House” into the hospital, providing programs that help families get to know each other, volunteers and staff, building a support network to help them through this difficult time. We serve over 27,000 family members annually through these programs.

    RMHC-Netherlands-2011-365 - compOur caring staff and volunteers have been helping families since opening our doors in 1989. Today, Ronald McDonald House of San Francisco operates two Ronald McDonald Houses – our original House on Scott Street, near Japantown, and our new House inside UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay.

    We would be honored to have you join us in fulfilling our mission and we would love to hear from you.
