Frequently asked questions...

My family is traveling to the hospital to seek care for our sick child, and we can’t afford lodging.  How do we apply to your Hopeful Nights program?


All applications for our Hopeful Nights program are based on a social worker referral.  To participate, ask your social worker to contact us by email at  If you have hospital social worker you are working with or, if you are turned away from a Ronald McDonald House, they can easily refer you as appropriate.


I love what you are doing!  How do I get involved?


We are seeking out more than just donations.  We are looking for board members and volunteers.  For details, go to the Get Involved portion of our website.
