  • The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children in the Ozarks.

    Our first priority is to provide a comfortable home environment for families when their seriously-ill or injured child is in a hospital far from home. In 1988, our cornerstone project, the Ronald McDonald House near Cox South opened and a second House was added inside Mercy Kids 2012. More than 800 families come to our two Springfield Ronald McDonald Houses each year and find love, care, compassion and hope as their child faces challenges no child should face.

    The Ronald McDonald Care Mobile, fondly known as the “Tooth Truck”, was founded and began treating patients in 2002. The Tooth Truck provides dental treatment and prevention education for at-risk children, primarily in school-based settings. As an extension of the Tooth Truck, the Healthy Smiles Academy began in 2011 and is an on-site brushing program that partners with local school districts to teach pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students the importance of brushing their teeth.

    As our future unfolds, our vision will continue to include strong investigation of the communities we serve, with consideration of increasing ways we can help children become healthier and stronger, and to help their lights shine brighter. In a spirit of service, we are deeply committed to our roles as “thoughtful stewards” of Ronald McDonald House Charities programs and resources. This level of commitment is our standard, and an ideal we all constantly strive for… as board members, professional staff, and volunteers.

      Volunteering with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ozarks is truly one of the highlights of my week. I have been an active volunteer at the house near Cox South for several months and thoroughly enjoy every minute I’m there.

      The staff is absolutely amazing and make me feel welcome and appreciated every time I walk through the doors. Every staff member I have had the privilege to work with has been kind-hearted and focused on providing a quality service and safe environment for EVERYONE who enters the house.

      One of the many things I enjoy about volunteering there is the staff’s continued dedication to assign me tasks that I am not only comfortable with performing but that also align with my personal strengths. It is through this dedication that I know my time and energy are being used to the fullest potential to have the greatest impact on the mission and priorities of the organization.

      I would highly recommend volunteering with the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ozarks to anyone with a desire to have a direct and positive impact on the health and well-being of children in the Ozarks.
