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.

Our Mission

To provide a “temporary” home-away-from-home for children and families of seriously ill children receiving medical care in any local hospital.

Our Vision

To be recognized and supported regionally for the care and support given to children and families of children throughout the Southern Appalachian region.

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.
