Our Mission & Vision

Keeping families together and near the medical care they need


The mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of South Louisiana is to provide a “home-away-from-home” to families of seriously ill or injured children and to provide programs that give comfort, compassion and care to children and their families.

Guiding us in our mission are our core values:

  • Focusing on the critical needs of children.
  • Celebrating the diversity of the programs we offer and the staff, volunteers and donors who make them possible.
  • Staying true to our heritage of responsible stewardship.
  • Operating with accountability and transparency.

We envision a world where children have access to quality medical care, and their families are supported and collaboratively engaged so they may all heal together.
