Request Housing

Though our goal is to provide overnight stays for every family in need, our Ronald McDonald Houses and Airbnb Open Homes program operate at full capacity and we are unable to accommodate every request. If you meet the eligibilty requirements above, please complete a housing request form.

Important Note: Completing a request form is not a reservation and does NOT guarantee a room. Once completed, your information is automatically added to our wait list. If a room is available, you will be contacted directly by our staff. Thank you.

 

Cost

Ronald McDonald House Charities® Bay Area requests a nominal donation of $10 per night. Thanks to donor support, no family is ever turned away due to inability to pay. Third party payments are accepted.
