Home sweet temporary home
Every year, Ronald McDonald House Charities in Omaha provides over 14,000 nights of lodging – and our goal is to make each one of those nights (and the days surrounding them) as uneventful as possible. That’s why our House so closely resembles a home. Comfortable beds, hot showers, laundry facilities, family-friendly kitchens, play areas, and more create that foundation of normalcy.
But beyond the physical environment, we provide a built-in support system that provides assistance, advice, and resources for just about any need imaginable. Not to mention that the families who stay here are more than willing to help one another out as much as possible. They may belong to a club they never wished to join, but if you’re in, you’re family.
The cost to provide both lodging and services is approximately $120 a night per family. While we do ask families staying with to contribute $25 for each night they stay, no family is ever turned away due to an inability to donate.
