A safe haven and happy place for sick children and their families. That is part of the amazing legacy of the Ronald McDonald House.

With a long history behind it, the Ronald McDonald House story is heartwarming. For any parent, family member, or caregiver who is faced with the overwhelming sadness of a sick child, the support and kindness that these houses offer is a great comfort.

In a story from nhregister.com a dream has come true in New Haven. The brand new Ronald McDonald House has opened its doors, right across from Yale Children’s Hospital. Located at 860 Howard Avenue, it replaces the old location on George Street.

The new facility cost over $11,000,000, and has 18 rooms for patients, with the hope of converting ten more rooms in the building to bedrooms when enough funds are raised for phase two of the project. There is, however, plans for more. According to the article, phase three is a 12-bedroom addition that could be built when they take down the building next door, though that is quite a few years down the line.

Stocky Clark, the executive director of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Connecticut and Western Massachusetts told the New Haven Register:

There is a culture and a soul to this house. There is a feeling, a sense of belonging that permeates the place. Families feel welcome and they feel that this is their house
