Monash, VIC

Ronald McDonald House Monash opened on 24th April 1993. The House is a home away from home for families of seriously ill children. Our facilities include 13 bedrooms, 2 self contained units, 24 hour access, a large communal kitchen, 2 laundries, 4 lounge rooms, a children’s play area, outdoor courtyard and off street parking.

Since opening over 3000 families have stayed at Ronald McDonald House Monash with many returning with their child to undergoing subsequent treatment. Each year over 500 families utilise the House which accommodates over 6,000 individuals per annum with a bed to sleep close to their child’s treating hospital.

“Nursing a child through serious illness or disability is the most traumatic experience any family can endure. We know because our families tell us this. We also know what a difference we make, to ease the burden during the most difficult period of their lives. The families staying at the House draw the warmth, laughter and inspiration from each other where there is a friend to talk to, a shoulder to cry on, a smile to share with someone walking the same difficult path in life”. - Bob May Chairman, Board of Management
