Our Houses

Eastern North Carolina

The Ronald McDonald House of Eastern North Carolina operates two Houses in Greenville to offer support to families in their time of need. The House on Moye Boulevard opened its doors in 1987. It offers families all the comforts of home, while being in close proximity to their child in the hospital. In 2013, a second Ronald McDonald House was opened inside the James and Connie Maynard Children’s Hospital at Vidant Medical Center. Both Houses offer housing and support to families in their time of need.
