As a volunteer and former house guest I have nothing but respect for this wonderful organization. As a guets the tsaff always seemed to know what to to do or say. Or even when to back off. For me, walking into the house during the day was a means of escape from the bedside "chaos." It was free of patients and hospital staff. No monitors or alarms. It allowed my mind to clear briefly.

As a volunteer I try to use my experience as a house guest to assit the current guest. Help them in any way I can. I try to make sure I keep the place clean, shelves stocked, and smile on my face. Always trying to make thier visit as pleasant as possible.

The Great!

The Ronald McDonald House truly is a home-away-from-home for so many families each year. I've had three personal experiences with family friends finding comfort and strength through their stay at the House.

When I was in high school, a very good friend of mine was diagnosed with
osteosarcoma in her leg. She fought so hard for so long, all with her family by her side. They were staying at the Ronald McDonald House until she was released from the hospital.

A year later, my friend developed leukemia and was back in Indianapolis for treatment, again with her family close by. For the second time, her family found hope through their stay at the House.

In my friend's honor, I decided to become a volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House, to be able to give back to a cause that helped her and her family so much in their time of need.

I am now the Communications and Marketing intern at the House, and I am truly getting to see the odds and ends of how much effort it takes to keep the House running, allowing so many families to be served each day.

There are so many amazing volunteers at the House, and that's one of my favorite parts of my job. I am able to volunteer for such a great cause, and have fun with my new team of staff as well. I've been able to meet a few families currently living at the House, and share in community meals, also coordinated by volunteers.

I just know, in my friend's time of need, the House was a safe haven for her family to turn to. I pray that with the help of volunteers and donors the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana can continue keeping families together when they need each other most.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in numerous ways. I've had three different friends find comfort in their stay at the House, and everyday, I'm seeing the benefits of so much hard work and how it truly pays off to help the families (past, present and future) who stay at the House.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would build another wing on the building. I would love for someday, even more families to be able to stay at the House.
