More than 40,000 families have been served since opening our doors in 1981, creating countless smiles, sharing a few tears, and many unforgettable memories. The majority of our families come from right here in Arkansas, but we also serve many families from across the nation and around the world.
"Dear Ronald McDonald House Staff,
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your hospitality during our son’s surgery the week of the 4th. We can’t begin to tell you how much stress it relieved by having a nice, clean place to stay as well as various meals, without a financial burden. As soon as Justin is better, we plan to donate some time at our local RM House here in NW Arkansas.

"Our son was born at 36 weeks with underdeveloped lungs, also with an infection in his lungs. He is a week old as of today and no longer has any breathing tubes and we were able to hold him!
Hopefully going home soon, but until then this building has done a perfect job at making a home away from home!
Prayers to all and God bless!"
- The Oliger Family
“Staff is so nice and polite. The many volunteers, companies, and organizations donating personal hygiene items and food is amazing.
We used to have to bring our own food for breakfast before his appointment, but now with the new house, breakfast items are provided. The dinners that are provided from groups, organizations, and businesses every night is always good. Leftovers can be eaten for lunch the next day.”
