RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE



We have had the privilege of being a small part of the Ronald McDonald House of Southwest VA. We have been able to perform for the guests of the house several times. The Ronald McDonald House provides a home-away-from-home for families of critically ill children who are seeking medical treatment in the Roanoke are medical facilities.
 

The Ronald McDonald House is located at 2224 S. Jefferson Street Roanoke, Virginia. The house is approximately three blocks from Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital at the corner of 23rd and Jefferson St. The English Tudor style building houses 18 guest rooms, 2 large dining rooms, a kitchen, living room, library and laundry facility.  There is also an outside playground area for children. The house provides much more than the comforts of home for families who must stay there during such a difficult time. The house also allows families an opportunity to meet other guests who are experiencing similar situations and share thoughts and information. The support system formed by families staying at the Ronald McDonald House provides an invaluable experience.

 

 

 

 

 




Located on the 14th floor of Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital, the Ronald McDonald Family Room serves as a respite area for adults family members and guest of hospitalized children.
