Story of the House

We believe in Keeping Families Close. Since 1984, The Ronald McDonald House of Augusta has opened its doors and its heart to care for families with critically injured and seriously ill children. We take care of the little things, like where to sleep and what to eat, so families can stay focused on what really matters; the health of their child. Located steps away from the Children’s Hospital of Georgia, we provide a much-needed retreat for families. With our new 23 bedroom house which opened in 2015, we are able to serve over 1,000 families each year.
