The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware serves as a home-away-from-home for families who have a child receiving specialized pediatric medical care at Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children or Christiana Hospital. The house provides a safe and affordable guestroom in a convenient location that makes it easier for families to stay together while their seriously or chronically ill or injured children receive medical treatment.
