The Nashville Ronald McDonald House provides an affordable “home away from home” and other resources for families and their children in need. The House is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day and is supported by six full time staff members and 200 active volunteers.

The House is a home, providing hot meals, laundry facilities and a place to rest. It has all the benefits of a house, including a playroom, teen game room, a library, two kitchens and a large dining room.
