Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in Austin

When families walk into a Ronald McDonald Family Room, they experience a positive environment where they can rest and regroup, while staying moments away from their critically ill child.

Listed below are the three Ronald McDonald Family Rooms in Austin. 

Volunteers are Needed at all Three of our Family Rooms.

The Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are run by staff and volunteers who work closely with hospital staff to provide the most comfortable and relaxing environment possible. They offer comfort and care for the families as they are dealing with the illness of their child. Watch the videos to learn about the impact you can have by becoming a volunteer.

How Family Rooms Help Children Heal

Research shows that a family presence in the hospital helps children heal faster and cope better. Staying close by allows parents to better communicate with their child’s medical team and improves adherence to complicated treatment plans.

Ronald McDonald Family Rooms provide an oasis of calm for these families while increasing their ability to advocate for their child. They can find comfort, care and support without leaving their child’s side. You can help make a difference for these families with your donation today.
