The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Indiana work to keep families close by while their children undergo medical treatment at Riley Hospital for Children, as well as work to improve programs that focus on the well-being of children. When a child is ill and in the hospital, it can cause a great deal of stress on a family emotionally and financially. The Ronald McDonald House helps approximately 5,000 families each year by providing somewhere to sleep, play areas, and other comforts of home.
