About Us

The Episcopal Home, a part of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Pennsylvania, is an affordable residence providing personal care while allowing residents to live as independently as possible. We meet the needs of the total person by providing comfort for the resident emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually.



Established in 1927, the Home is the oldest personal care facility in the Shippensburg area. The Home was originally occupied by three ladies. During the mid-50’s, the Home grew to six women in residence. In 1959, the first addition was added allowing space for up to 22 residents and for the first time, men. The latest addition to The Home was built in 1999 which brought capacity to 32 full time residents. The small number of residents enables the staff, volunteers, residents and their families and friends to develop close, friendly relationships.

As a non-profit home, the quality of care is never compromised. Quality of care is often correlated with longevity of staff and our staff turnover rate is minimal at best in comparison with national averages. This allows for the residents to build trusting relationships with their care providers. The Home employs nurses, cooks and aides. We also enjoy having a number of volunteers from the community and the local Shippensburg University who are willing to help with food services, activities and special events. The Home is centrally located in downtown Shippensburg. Many residents still attend their home church and maintain memberships in nearby civic organizations.

The Home is a personal care facility which allows residents to receive assistance with medications, daily living tasks, meals, transportation to physician appointments, laundry services, housekeeping, 24-hour emergency response, daily planned activities and private rooms. We have a strict no discrimination policy in our operating and admissions procedures. All denominations are welcome.

We are located in the heart of Shippensburg, Pennsylvania at 206 East Burd Street. Schedule your tour today!
