Bailey House

Bailey House is a “home away from home” at 119 & 121 Washington Street (two blocks from Harrisburg Hospital), which provides a convenient place for families from outside the immediate Harrisburg area to reside while their seriously ill loved one is hospitalized. You can feel especially good about the gift you make to the Auxiliary because 97 cents of every dollar goes to PinnacleHealth in support of patient care services.

A Very Special Thank You to the Local Businesses that Support Bailey House through special donations:

Casual Conversations Lead to Generous Donation to Bailey House
As a result of our Bailey House manager, Beverly Bosak, reaching out to a friend and former classmate over coffee and conversations at AGIA Sophia Coffeehouse & Bookstore and discussing Bailey House and the needs of our patients’ loved ones Orthodox Christian Charities of Greater Harrisburg, Inc. chose Bailey House as its monthly charity. They made a very generous contribution to our home-away- from-home for the families of our patients confined to the Harrisburg Area.

We are extremely grateful to the Orthodox Christian Charities of Greater Harrisburg, Inc. as well as Barbara and her fellow community volunteer, Joanne Wevodau, for initiating the conversation.  Agia Sophia is a non-profit coffeehouse and operates under the umbrella of the Orthodox Christian Charities of Greater Harrisburg, Inc.  Please visit Agia Sophia’s website at  to learn more about its mission and charitable giving.

Never underestimate the power of “dropping a word” or two about our volunteer work and the needs and the accomplishments we as volunteers in the community are most proud of.
