Keeping Families Close

Families fighting cancer can find the support they need, right here

When families must travel to New York City for their child’s life saving cancer treatment, Ronald McDonald House New York offers them a safe, clean, and supportive place to stay in close proximity to major hospitals. We provide private bedrooms, family rooms, kitchens, a library, a playroom, computer rooms, laundry facilities, tutoring, activities, and transportation services.

Most importantly, we create an environment where kids can be children first and patients second.
