The Adopt A Room partnership program allows you, your company, or your organization to be the room sponsor of a guest room at one of our two Houses—Chestnut Street or Front & Erie. Your funding will support the housekeeping and maintenance of that room and thereby provide a clean and comfortable space for all the families who will stay in that room for a whole year.

By partnering with our Adopt A Room program, you are doing more than making sure families have a place to sleep each night—as important as that is. You are making it easier for children to get the treatment they need and have their families close by their side, every step of the way. You are eliminating many of the financial challenges that come with traveling long distances for medical care,
so that parents can focus on their child’s treatment. You are also providing parents with the support and rest they need to be there for their seriously ill children and their siblings.

Me and my wife have
never experienced such
care and generosity. It’s
– Joseph Matias-Fonseca,
House Guest

Twin brothers Jeremiah and Isaiah Fonseca-Gonzalez received oncology treatment and bone marrow transplants at CHOP. Their family has stayed at the Chestnut Street House for 364 nights.

In 2019, we had more than 2,384 family stays, with families traveling from 47 states and 31 countries. Families from Pennsylvania accounted for 33% of all stays and 24% came from New Jersey. While the average length of stay was 13 days, many stayed longer, with 365 nights being the longest length of stay.

Thanks to generous donors like you, 99% of these families believe that because of the House, they were better able to maintain their well-being while their children received care, and 99% believe that staying at the House helped to reduce their stress levels. Finally, 99% feel that the Ronald McDonald Houses in Philadelphia provided them with support that they would not otherwise have received during their children’s care.
