The original Washington Ronald McDonald House opened it’s doors in June of 1980, and was the sixteenth House to open in the six years since the program began. Over thirty years it was a home-away-from-home for more than 14,000 families of critically ill children. Although the nearly one hundred-year-old Spanish colonial had served our purposes well, it no longer met the space or functional needs of our growing number of families. In 2006, a Capital Campaign was launched to raise funds to build the new House located on 14th Street NE.
