Crafting a Home to Help Heal: The Ronald McDonald House of Madison

The Ronald McDonald House of Madison is a “home away from home” for families while their beloved children receive care at area hospitals. As the need for pediatric medical services continues to grow, so has the need to expand space for families committed to staying close to their little loved ones during treatment. Since craftsmanship is at the core of what we do, Findorff was honored to help fill this need with the recent addition to the Ronald McDonald House, built on a foundation of community and hope.

The addition nearly doubled the size of the facility. Findorff added 13 additional guest rooms, two of which accommodate larger families, and eight ADA compliant rooms. Expanded indoor and outdoor play areas, improved kitchen facilities, parking, enhanced security, and private spaces were also improvements. Findorff Superintendent Adam Budda played a key role in the project’s construction. “There were many days that the building was at capacity,” he said. “Our team worked hard to keep noise down while providing families complete access to the existing building.

”Ronald McDonald House Charities of Madison Executive Director Kevin Huddleston is overjoyed with the addition and remodeled facility. “Many of our families enjoyed watching the workers during construction,” Huddleston said. “But it doesn’t even come close to how thankful we are to have a beautiful, comfortable, and homey space built with love."
