Our staff, both paid (2 full time and several part time) and unpaid-over 600 volunteer hours monthly, work diligently to make the Ronald McDonald House, Missoula a pleasant and safe place for our guests.  Each guest is issued an electronic key which opens the front door, his/her room, the library and the laundry rooms.  The outside doors are locked as a safety precaution for our guests and staff.  Security is very important to us, therefore we may ask you to identify yourself and state your purpose when you come to the House to see a member of the staff or a guest.
