The Ronald McDonald House of Long Island is a "home away from home" providing comfort and shelter to families experiencing the pain of having a sick child in an area hospital. Families live with us, prepare their meals, and are able to come and go as necessary. At the Ronald McDonald House, families establish friendships and share anxieties with others in similar situations. Our goal is to offer comfort, both physical and emotional. Coping with a seriously ill child can be one of the most difficult and painful experiences a family may ever face. For families traveling long distances to obtain the best possible medical care for their child, the strain is even more severe. Faced with spending nights in hospital waiting rooms or costly hotels just to be near their child, parents often find themselves isolated and anxious - removed from the support and understanding they so desperately need. The mission of the House is to strive in all ways possible to relieve the stress of illness, by offering these special families a warm, caring environment.
