Keeping families with sick children together and near the care and resources they need.
Special Statement Regarding COVID-19
It is the highest priority of The Board of Directors and staff at the House to provide a healthy and safe environment for our families, volunteers, and staff.
Therefore, effective immediately to reduce the possibility of infection we are temporarily halting all in-house volunteer programs (this includes our meal program) and closing the House to volunteers and visitors.
We are in regular contact with our hospital partners and local health authorities who are closely monitoring the situation of COVID-19 and we will continue to act thoughtfully to ensure all precautionary steps are taken.
There are ways you can continue to support the families and staff at the House during this time. Call 423-975-5437 or go to our updated Wish List

Welcome To Our Home
Southern Appalachian Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc.
In 1996, The Southern Appalachian Ronald McDonald House opened its home in Johnson City, TN and has since achieved to provide a temporary “home-away-from-home” for families of seriously ill children throughout the Southern Appalachian region. Forty (40) counties located throughout Northeast TN, Southwest VA and Eastern KY and covering a 125-mile radius outside the city limits of Johnson City are served by this regional facility.
Our house is nestled in a scenic wooded area across from Niswonger Children’s Hospital in Johnson City, Tennessee. Making it convenient for parents, who have been uprooted from their daily lives, to be near their seriously ill child, yet, have a temporary nurturing environment to sleep, have the comforts of a “home-away-from-home”, support, and peace-of-mind so they can focus and be readily available if there is an emergency with their child.
The House is a not-for-profit organization that provides a temporary “home-away-from-home” for families whose children are receiving treatment for serious illnesses at area hospitals. The Southern Appalachian Ronald McDonald House commits to establishing an environment where families stay together and have the highest quality of life amidst the challenges they face.
The services are provided regardless of a family’s ability to pay.

And dry their tears,
To look forward with Hope
To better years.
