Embracing Aging: Making York County a Great Place to Age!
Launched in fall 2013, Embracing Aging is a long-term initiative that focuses on improving how people experience aging in York County, PA. We believe all age groups are an important part of a vibrant community.
To accomplish this, we work to:
- Improve livability, resulting in more age-equitable decisions, policies, and designs that help people live more easily in their homes and communities.
- Reframe stigma of aging, resulting in less ageism, improved attitudes on aging, and increased age-equitable solutions to create a York County that is more welcoming, safe, appropriate, and adaptable for all ages.
- Improve quality of life, resulting in more people thinking holistically about their aging experience and taking an active role in what they need to live their best life, now and in the future.
- Provide grants for programs serving people age 50+.
Donor Anna Gardner and Hahn Home Fund Supports Embracing Aging
York County Community Foundation’s Hahn Home Fund supports Embracing Aging, which began with the vision of one woman, Anna Gardner, who died in 1913 and left her estate to support the Hahn Home and care for older women. Now, 100+ years later, her legacy lives on through Embracing Aging, which includes grants for programs serving people age 50 and older.
