Ronald McDonald House of Indiana
Keeping families
together when
they need each
other the most.
Dear Friends,
A Message from our President of the Board and Executive Director
Children heal better and faster when surrounded by their family. Parents know that intuitively, and doctors and nurses tell us that too.
So when a child is seriously ill and needs to be by their medical team for days, weeks, even months at a time, finding a way to keep
Mom, Dad and siblings close by is the most important thing in the world.
Last year, the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana provided a home-away-from-home for 1,412 families. For some of these families,
this meant suddenly learning of their child’s devastating diagnosis; for others, it was a repeat trip to a place that has unfortunately
become all too familiar. Regardless of their circumstances, families found respite and a community of support just moments from the
hospital and most importantly, just moments for their child.
We are extremely grateful for our generous donors and supporters
who help us provide a safe, comfortable home for families to rest,
recharge and find strength to help their child get better. When
enough of us come together, we can fight for families like no other
charity. We can make sure that while a child gets the necessary
care, the family does too, with a warm bed, warm meals, and little
to worry about beyond keeping their child strong.
For all you do to support our House, we thank you!
Chris Lake, President of the Board
Beth Johnson, Executive Director
The House That Love Built
Serving families since 1982, the Ronald McDonald House of Indiana provides
a safe haven and home-away-from-home for parents and siblings of
seriously ill or injured children. Since we opened our doors, more than
35,000 families from every Indiana county, as well as many other states and
countries have stayed at the House.
With our two locations on the IUPUI campus and inside Riley Hospital for
Children at IU Health, we help support the entire family and ensure that they
have access to the best medical care.
The Ronald McDonald House offers guest families:
Close proximity to their hospitalized children
Comfortable place to sleep
Financial relief
Home-cooked meals provided by the community
Six apartments for transplant and immune-compromised patients
Gathering areas for families to share their lives
Fully-equipped family-style kitchens
Library with books donated by the community
Ongoing support from volunteers, staff and other families
Indoor and outdoor play areas
Laundry facilities and WiFi internet access

Families are stronger,
when they are together.

Volunteers are the Heart of Our House
Every night, 58 tired and weary families call the Ronald
McDonald House of Indiana home while their critically ill or
injured children receive lifesaving treatment at local hospitals.
The warm hearts and helping hands of our volunteers make
the Ronald McDonald House a loving and comforting homeaway-from-home that helps strengthen families during a time
when they need each other the most.
Ronald McDonald greets volunteers at the annual
volunteer celebration.
Famillies enjoy a delicious breakfast served by St. Elmo’s.
Employees from Borshoff spend a day at our House at
Riley preparing meals for guests, cleaning rooms and
sharing time with families.
2011 Volunteer Highlights
While deployed, Chris and his Air Force buddies collected pop tabs
at their recreation center. At the same time, his mom was collecting
pop tabs in Denver. Back home, Chris and his daughter, Carly,
stopped by our House at Riley to drop off the thousands of tabs
they collected.

Recorded Hours of Work
Total Value of Hours Worked
610 home-cooked meals provided by volunteer groups meant
families never had to worry about where they were going to
get their next meal.
85 service projects kept our House in top condition so families
walking through our doors immediately began to feel a sense
of relief that continued throughout their stay.
At the Ronald McDonald House,
families can face the weight of an illness together.

Children heal better when their families can be with them and no family should ever
have to worry about the cost of being at their child's side, especially when they are sick.
We are deeply grateful to our room sponsors who help underwrite the cost of a family’s
lodging at a time when they need it the most.
