2018 YEAR IN REVIEW

In 2018, our Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House provided a community where families embrace life and healing with a sense of hope, enthusiasm, courage, and joy. Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) continues to be a significant partner and financial supporter (75 percent of our guest families have a child receiving treatment at the neighboring hospital). Funding provided by the Ahmanson Foundation, Jeunesse, and CatlinXL helped improve our House with much-needed upgrades, a complete HVAC replacement for our immune-compromised wing, and new guest room furniture. We also improved House security by fortifying entrance doors and installing new security cameras. Service days by third-party groups also helped us install new kitchen cabinets and flooring, upgrade our exercise room, and add a fresh coat of paint throughout the House. In 2018, we hosted 292 Meals, including 51 corporate groups. Our Family Support Services program expanded to nine interns, who spent 1,849 hours providing therapeutic support to guest families. Our House was also visited by special guests, including actors Ken Jeong, Joel McHale, Sebastian Stan, and Jonathan Bennett, and sports stars such as Yasiel Puig, Dikembe Mutombo, and cheer teams from the Los Angeles Lakers and Kings. Come take a tour, bring a corporate or community team to make a Meal of Love for our families, or visit our website to discover ways to volunteer for a Day of Service or at upcoming events!
