Ronald McDonald House

I tagged along with my daughter and a Small Group from Northridge Church to Ronald McDonalds House at Children's Hospital in Detroit. The Group prepares and serves a dinner once a month to the parents of children hospitalized with serious illnesses.

Families often travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill or injured children at Children's Hospital of Michigan in Detroit. Nothing seems scarier to children facing a serious medical crisis than not having their mom and dad close by for love and support.

Ronald McDonald House programs provide a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close to their hospitalized child at little or no cost. The Houses are operated on the simple idea that there is nothing more important than supporting a family who is focused on healing their child.  Alleviating the worry of where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest.
