Ronald McDonald House Monash works to enhance the quality of life for families with sick children by providing a home-away-from-home that is welcoming, caring and supportive.
Each family who stays at the House has their own unique story, but all have a place to rest and recover so they can face their challenges. We offer families a shoulder to lean on yet privacy when they need it. Families have safety, comfort and peace of mind when they stay with us.
Our goal is to ensure that we never have to turn away eligible families who need our services.
Since opening in 1993 we have helped over 9,000 families who have needed to travel to care for their sick child at Monash Children’s Hospital.
Located in Clayton on the hospital grounds, the House is just a few minutes walk from the hospital wards.
We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year and can accommodate 15 families each and every night.
