Embracing Aging Grants Program

Improving Aging in York County

For Grant Seekers Embracing Aging Grants

Embracing Aging Grants Program

Embracing Aging is supported by the Hahn Home Fund, which was established through the bequest of Anna Gardner; also includes the Chester H. Thomas Fund.

Embracing Aging focuses on improving how people experience aging in York County.

Community Grants outcome:

  • Social isolation of older people is reduced.

Larger Grants outcomes:

  • Aging adults who want to proactively plan or change their aging experience have the knowledge and confidence to do so.
  • Services and programs to help older people thrive in their homes and community are collaborative and innovative.

Our vision is to make York County a great place to age!
