The staff at Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) of Greater Chattanooga made us feel at home.
Amanda and Brian Gossett from Tracy City, Tenn. didn’t expect their second pregnancy to be full of difficulties.
Graclynn has been doing great. We were told if she ever got admitted to the hospital again, we could stay at Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) again; we totally would.
Even now, the ministry of the Ronald McDonald Family Room has been a source of comfort and rest as my son has spent many visits in the hospital and PICU. Hudson is now 6 years old.
Trinity & Jeremiah
This is Trinity and Jeremiah Taylor. We got to stay down there while the twins were in NICU.
My husband was diagnosed with congestive heart failure at age 27. We spent a year and a half at Erlanger hospital off and on with over 30 stays.
I am so glad that our case worker and the staff at Ronald McDonald House convinced us otherwise. They really are a lifesaver in so many ways.
Thanks to RMHC, we were able to stay close to the babies.
We were overwhelmed during this difficult time, and the staff and volunteers made it much easier to bear.
We are so thankful for RMHC of Greater Chattanooga!
Thank you to all of the wonderful people who volunteer and make RMHC a possibility for those of us who would otherwise not have a place to stay
During my pregnancy I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.
Baby James spent 18 long days in the NICU. He was born at 4 lbs. 5 oz. He was 16 3/4 inches long.
Parker Edward Wayne
I was so grateful to be able to stay close to my son that it brought me to tears.
I have been a volunteer since the House opened and it has been a major part of my children's lives since they were born.
Our family will never forget the kindness, love, and support we were given and continue to receive from our RMHC "family!"
If it wasn't for the help of the Ronald McDonald House we wouldn't be able to be close to our baby boy.
I have the privilege of being the CEO of RMHCof Greater Chattanooga and my Ronald McDonald House story spans two generations.
The Ronald McDonald house was without a doubt one of the biggest blessings we received.
I'm so thankful for the Ronald McDonald House! Because of them, I could stay close to my baby who is doing great.
The team at the House was amazing and always there for us whenever we needed anything.

If it wasn’t for all the support from the Ronald McDonald House, I couldn't have made it through this hard time...
Avery and Averitt Hayes
We have stayed at the Ronald McDonald House for Averitt's surgeries as well and have always loved visiting and staying there!
Lola Grace McDougal
I was so happy because I knew I was not leaving Lola living an hour away.
We could never repay the generosity and love that we were shown during our time at the House.
The Chattanooga Ronald McDonald House was truly a blessing for our family.
Our daughter Layla was born with Apert Syndrome, a rare disorder that affects the skull, face, hands & feet.
RMH took the away the stress of finding a place to stay so that we could help Mackenzie grow.
He was hospitalized one day short of nine months.
We lived at the Ronald McDonald House for 7 long months after we gave birth to our daughter Malissa.
My twins were born 12 weeks early at 28 weeks and they were 1lb. 10oz. and 2lbs. 5oz. They went through a lot during their stay at the hospital.
It was such a blessing during the hardest week of our lives to have somewhere to come to in the very few hours spent away from the NICU.
When I checked in to the Ronald McDonald House on March 20,2016, I didn't know what I was going to do. Everyone there was loving and caring to me.
We spent the next few weeks in the NICU and at the Ronald McDonald House; we are so thankful for both of them.
