Mission Statement: Ronald McDonald House Charities lifts children and families to a better tomorrow by providing a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill children and young adults receiving medical care in Topeka, Kansas.
Hours: 9:00 am – 8:00 pm
Services: Established in 1988, our facility includes eight bedrooms with full baths, a large dining room, double kitchen, comfortable living area, family room, laundry room, play yard and off-street parking. Facility is handicap accessible.
Eligibility: Guests must be referred by physician, nurse or social worker to stay at the house. Eligible families must live outside the city limits of Topeka. Most of our families are parents of premature infants but we also host families of pediatric intensive care and adolescent mental health patients. In addition, we open our doors to cases of pre-term, high-risk pregnancies and Neo-Natal adoptions. Because the house is a communal living environment, guest must meet several basic health and legal thresholds to be eligible to stay.
Fees: We request a donation $15 per room per night. However, no eligible family is turned away due to inability to pay.
Funding: Individual and corporate donations, grants and other sources
