    Overview

    Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD) serves as a home-away-from-home for families of seriously ill or injured children who are hospitalized or receiving treatment in Dallas area hospitals.

    We can never guarantee the number of families/children who will be in the house to participate for an activity. Please be flexible and plan something that will adjust to all ages. All Volunteers must be 15 years of age or older. Most activities take place in the evenings or on the weekends. All activities should last about an hour unless you are showing a movie. All movies must be rated G or PG to be shown in the media room.

    With approximately 78,000 square feet, the House offers 79 private bedrooms, 4 extended stay suites and 6 transplant apartments. Additionally, the House contains multiple playrooms for kids of all ages and interests, a library, media room, craft room, chapel, meditation garden, and outdoor play areas. Two large communal kitchens and dining room provide opportunities for the families to share the evening meal, which is provided 3 times a day by community volunteers, or to prepare their own food if they choose. Hundreds of volunteers support RMHD’s annual operations and fundraising activities by serving families at the House, preparing meals, and hosting organized activities.
