  • Mission:
  • Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc. (ARMHC) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to serving the needs of children, by providing temporary housing and support services to families of ill and injured children being treated at local hospitals.

    ARMHC also supports local area high school seniors with college scholarships. In 2013, 10 students were awarded $2,500 every year for four years and 58 students were awarded a one-time $1,500 scholarship to the college of their choice.

  • Overview:
  • In 2014, the two Atlanta Houses will serve nearly 2,000 families of ill and injured children. Since opening our doors in 1979 ARMHC has served more than 43,000 families.

    The Gatewood House is the second Ronald McDonald House in the world to receive LEED certification.

  • History:
  • In 1979, Atlanta's first Ronald McDonald House located at 792 Houston Mill Road opened with eight bedrooms before eventually expanding to 16 bedrooms. This house hosted more than 24,000 families of ill and injured children.

    Continued, selfless commitment of volunteers and donors including Atlanta area McDonald's franchisees, and Scottish Rite Children's Medical Center (now Children's Healthcare of Atlanta), helped build a second Atlanta Ronald McDonald House, at 5420 Peachtree Dunwoody Road. This home away from home offers 11 bedrooms and has hosted nearly 10,000 families since opening in June 1994.

    With only 27 bedrooms and an average stay of eight days, the Houses continually operated at or near capacity with a waiting list almost every day for five years. To meet the increased demand, in 2005 ARMHC began planning for a much needed new and larger Ronald McDonald House

    After a very successful fundraising campaign, $16.2 million was raised to open a new 60,871 sq. ft. House located at 795 Gatewood Road. The facility opened June 2008 replacing Atlanta's original House on Houston Mill Road. The Gatewood House features a transplant wing for children who have received heart, liver, kidney and bone marrow or transplants. This wing, comprised of 10 two-bedroom suites (931 sq. ft.), is separated from the other 40 guest rooms in order to protect these children from exposure to infections.
