The Parsonages are currently serving families of patients of the transplant,
oncology, and hematology services and the Heart and Vascular Institute. Forty
to forty-five volunteers from 10 different churches care for our guests and
the home on a monthly basis.

The Parsonage at Spring Creek opened in September 2008 as a home away from
home for the families of patients at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical
Center. Our partner church, Spring Creek Church of the Brethren in Hershey,
allows Love INC to use and operate their lovely historic four-bedroom home.

 

The Parsonage at Spring Creek

The Hershey Medical Center’s Family Centered Care Team was wrestling with their top concern of having available, close, low-cost housing arrangements for adult family members of patients, especially for families in the Heart and Vascular Institute since they returned for treatment frequently. In December 2007, Love INC began the magical, almost effortless, process of transforming Spring Creek Church of the Brethren’s former 4-bedroom parsonage into a home away from home for adult guests of Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center patients. With local business, church, and individual support, The Parsonage celebrated their grand opening on November 14, 2008.The Parsonage at Spring Creek is located in a pleasant residential neighborhood of Hershey 2 miles from the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. (The Parsonage at Spring Creek is a private home and is not handicap accessible. Guests must be able to do steps.)

Inside, the comfortable, beautifully-appointed living room offers guests the use of a television and DVD player, and internet access, if requested.

The kitchen in The Parsonage at Spring Creek provides a refrigerator and microwave for guests to prepare light meals.
