I had the opportunity this morning to tour St. Agnes’ House, a hospitality ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Lexington. The house provides affordable lodging to patients and their caregivers who come to Lexington seeking treatment for serious illnesses at area hospitals. Many are patients at UK HealthCare due to the house’s proximity to our campus and the long-term nature of many of the highly complex services we provide. Rev. Rebecca Myers, executive director of St. Agnes’ House, took our group through the facility and educated us about how the house operates.
St. Agnes’ House is a tremendous asset for low-income guests from Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia and it can always use your support through volunteering or donations. Learn more about the house and ways you can help by visiting www.stagneshouse.org, www.facebook.com/stagneshouse or by following @stagneshouse on Twitter.
My thanks to Rev. Myers for hosting our group and helping us learn more about this great community resource.
