Our Mission

The Long Beach Ronald McDonald House fills a critical healthcare gap for families of children with life-threatening conditions. Over the past two decades, advances in medical care have dramatically improved survival rates for childhood illnesses, but it is still difficult for many families to access such life-saving treatment options. Some travel hundreds of miles to reach world-class pediatric hospitals like Miller Children’s in Long Beach, and it is not uncommon for one or both parents to quit their jobs so they can manage their child’s medical needs. This effort places an enormous strain emotional and financial on the parents and siblings of these young patients while they attempt to cope with a terrifying diagnosis and perform the day-to-day tasks of normal family life.
