What is the Ronald McDonald House?
San Francisco is home to several well-known childrens' hospitals-- UCSF, Kaiser, and CPMC-- that attract patients from as far as Oregon and Las Vegas. Because hotels are so expensive, the families of the patients (usually pre-term babies) often sleep in their cars or hospital chairs. Ronald McDonald House SF provides an alternative-- a temporary home with ten rooms in the Western Addition-- where families can stay and socialize with others families in similar situations and volunteers.
