Your support helps families stay close to the hospital while their child receives critical treatment.


Since 1980, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Arkansas (RMHCA) has provided a home away from home for more than 35,000 families sent to Little Rock for life-saving medical care for their child. The House provides a comfortable place for them to stay while providing the little things that are otherwise easily taken for granted — a comfortable suite, meals, play spaces and friendly faces to come home to after a long day in the hospital.

RMHCA also operates the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, a 40-foot mobile unit that provides free, full-service dental care and education to children who need it most.
