About Ronald McDonald House of SNJ
For more than 31 years, the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey has served as a “home-away-from-home,” for more than 27,000 families whose children are being treated at area hospitals for critical illnesses and traumatic injuries. By helping alleviate emotional stress and financial hardship during a time of family crisis, we enable more than 800 families each year to focus on helping their child heal. Families come from as close as the Southern New Jersey/Greater Philadelphia region and from as far as every state and 39 foreign countries, joining us during what is likely the most stressful time of their lives. Fortunately, many patients do not require hospitalization therefore approximately 70% of the children also reside in the House with their parents while going back and forth to the hospital for daily treatment. Our charity also operates 11 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, which are located in hospitals across Southern New Jersey helping another 14,000 local families.
