Ronald McDonald House
About This Project
This second Ronald McDonald House at O’Bannon in Las Vegas, Nevada, is a place where families and their children can seek refuge, respite, and community while they go through one of the toughest times of their lives. The new one-story home will consist of independent family spaces on the donated property. The building, once completed, will provide long-term housing for up to eight families at a time. The facility will include independent living units, a play area, courtyard, parking, and an office for RMHC staff. The project will increase capacity by 67 percent to serve up to 188 more families each year. Even more important, it will provide a longer-term, temporary home to families and children experiencing a medical crisis. The Ronald McDonald House is the only program of its kind in Las Vegas. More than 70% of families who stay at the Ronald McDonald House come from low-to-moderate income households. More than one in three family stays are longer than a month. The longest family stayed for two years, three months, and 28 days. Features of the O’Bannon house include eight independent family spaces with outdoor patios, gathering spaces that create community and connection between families, outdoor play area for all ages, peaceful central courtyard, and outdoor seating and grill areas.
