Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House

October 22, 2014

Founded by Scott Fouts, Fouts Electric Corp. in 1989. An electrical contracting company, Fouts Electric Corp. has worked on more than 2,000 projects since its inception, including the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House.

Located near downtown Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House was established more than three decades ago. A program offered through the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California, the home provides a temporary residence for families who wish to stay nearby their ailing children as they undergo treatment. As of 2014, more than 25,000 families have stayed at the house, many of which have loved ones admitted to nearby Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Shriners Hospital, and Kaiser Permanente – Sunset.

The Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House accommodates up to 75 families. It includes amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen to prepare family meals. While the establishment spends $90 a night to provide shelter to a single family, guests are only asked to contribute a nominal $25 fee per day. However, no guests are turned away due to their inability to pay.
