to Our House!
Ronald McDonald House is the cornerstone program of Ronald McDonald Charities of the Four States. It is a "home-away-from-home" for the families of seriously ill children (0 - 18 years) and ill expectant mothers being treated at nearby Freeman Hospitals and Mercy Hospital Joplin.
Ronald McDonald House of the Four States opened July 27, 1998.
Our 10,054 square foot main level includes:
* Ten large bedrooms, each with its own private bath
* Two large family rooms, one with a self-contained children's play area
* Kitchen and laundry facilities
* Two conference rooms
* A chapel
* An outdoor play area
* A patio and garden
Our 3,946 square foot lower level insludes a recreation area, and four additional bedroom suites for expansion.
Since registering our first guest on August 20, 1998, our House has served over two thousand three hundred families from thirty-five different states and two foreign countries. Our House has served families from over two hundred and forty-five communities in our Four State area of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas.
Over one hundred and twenty active volunteers help with all aspects of the House, including support and services to families, and night managerial duties.
Ronald McDonald House of the Four States is part of the only worldwide service of 325 Ronald McDonald Houses in 32 countries and regions.
