The Long Beach Ronald McDonald House is a “home away from home” for families with critically-ill children. We provide a place to stay, a source of comfort and care, and a chance to focus all of their energies on the one thing that matters most of all: their child. Fulfilling this mission is possible because of the generosity and commitment of the community. Through gifts of time, talent and financial support, the Long Beach Ronald McDonald House is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, for the families of children facing critical, often life-threatening, illnesses.
