Our Work Embracing Aging

Embracing Aging: Making York County a Great Place to Age!

Embracing Aging is a long-term initiative that focuses on improving how people experience aging in York County, PA.  To accomplish this, we work to improve attitudes on aging and reduce barriers to aging well.

We envision a vibrant York County where all ages can thrive.  We want older people to live easily in their homes and communities.  We believe older residents taking an active role and having their voices heard is important to increasing quality of life.

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 gifted her estate to help care for older women in the community.  We are honored to carry on her legacy over 100 years later!

YCCF’s Managing Director of Embracing Aging, Cathy Bollinger, is available to speak locally, regionally, and nationally on a variety of topics, including creating age-friendly communities and dismantling ageism.
