Room Requests
Updated 4/28/21

We are diligently working with our Global organization and hospital partners to safely reopen the House to all families. Our goal is to welcome families into a safe and comfortable environment that will allow them to have access to the care their child needs while continuing to observe the COVID-19 guidelines recommended by the CDC. Our Global organization has approved a phased reopening plan to help our House accomplish this goal.

We are currently continuing a phased reopening of the Ronald McDonald House. We want to ensure that families with the most critical need are prioritized for our services, so until further notice, all room requests must be made by the patient’s hospital social worker. Families will not be able to self-refer.

Families wishing to stay at the House should contact the hospital social work department where the patient is receiving treatment and ask to speak with a social worker.

We appreciate your patience.

Our House and Programs
We have suspended volunteer shifts, our volunteer meal program, and created a plan for limiting all non-operations staff to work from home. We are taking every necessary precaution we can to protect our current families and our staff.

The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware is closed to visitors. Drop in-kind donations (including pop tabs) at the side door. Follow signs in the parking lot that say “DONATIONS.” Drive to your left and there is a bin outside of our double doors. If you need to speak to someone, call (302) 656-4847.
