About Ronald McDonald House Charities of Huntington, Inc.
Ronald McDonald Houses are located near hospitals that provide specialized care for children and adolescents. Our house, located on 17th Street behind Cabell Huntington Hospital, offers families a home away from home, a refuge from the hospital. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, our House provides guests with a comfortable bed, kitchen and laundry facilities, a library, computer room, and playroom for children.
Huntington’s House is the largest in West Virginia, with over 12,200 families staying with us through 2014. Families who stay at our House will find other families who are facing the same concerns and a staff and volunteers who care and want to listen. Our mission is to provide a “home away from home” for families with sick children. Ronald McDonald House Charities strive to provide families with the amenities of home (a warm bed, food, support) while their children are receiving life-saving treatment at an area hospital.
Our House exists because of wondrously generous individuals who have continued to believe in the power of love and kindness. The support we are provided means a great deal to our guests families. Since our beginning we have been striving to keep families together in “the House that Love Built.”
