Ronald McDonald KC Houses


The Ronald McDonald Houses are a “Home Away From Home” for thousands of families every year who must travel to the Kansas City area to receive medical treatment for a sick or injured child. Together, the three Ronald McDonald Houses (Cherry Street House, Longfellow House and Wylie House) provide temporary lodging to as many as 80 families each night while their children undergo vital medical care. The family Suites inside our Longfellow House allow us to serve immuno-suppressed children and their families (i.e. organ transplants and bone marrow transplants). Both Houses offer a warm and welcoming place to sleep, as well as full kitchen facilities, laundry facilities, living rooms and recreation areas to provide a homey environment where families may relax away from the stresses of the hospital and meet other families experiencing similar crises.

Wylie House - A Labor of Love

The Wylie House was the third Ronald McDonald House opened on Feb. 12, 2015. Adding 20 more bedrooms to make 87 total in Kansas City, the Wylie House was built in order for RMHC-KC to be there every time for the families that need their services. With area hospitals growing and expanding, the waiting list grew to unmanageable numbers, and this House was the answer to that need.
