Jane Conover – Women’s History Month Spotlight

In honor of Women’s History Month, we are highlighting inspirational leaders who help to make York County a place where everyone is given the opportunity to thrive.

We can’t talk about Women’s History Month without giving a shout-out to York County Community Foundation’s President & CEO, Jane Conover.

Prior to working in York, Jane was Housing Director at Citizens Planning and Housing Association in Baltimore, MD. She also spent time as a caseworker and housing counselor for a variety of agencies in Baltimore and Erie, PA.
