TroveStreet is an initiative of the York County Community Foundation (YCCF), a 60+ year-old charitable organization located in York, PA, that is passionate about creating a vibrant York County where everyone can thrive.
YCCF commissioned an Embracing Aging Study to assess the livability of York County.
The report identified the need for creating a culture of centralizing information, services, and opportunities for older adults in the smartest, most efficient and comprehensive way. As a result, helping people plan for how and where they want to live as they age is a priority. TroveStreet is the solution to address this need.
What We Believe at TroveStreet
We all come from different backgrounds, experiences, and communities. And although we are not the same, we each deserve the best quality of life possible as we grow older. We believe these five principles — with the support of TroveStreet — can inspire and guide you along the way.
1. Build your community
It’s never too late to build or grow connections with people of all ages. Stay connected — we are better together.
2. Focus on possibilities
Aging doesn’t erase your purpose, even when you’re in the midst of difficult times. Focus on what can be and what’s ahead — not what’s lost.
3. Find the joy
Sometimes the tiniest of things in life give us a reason to smile and laugh. Seek out the joy in everyday life.
4. Engage in life
Don’t stop moving the needle forward. Find something to do — big or small — every day. Opportunities are all around you.
5. Embrace your reason
You are important. Invest in yourself daily by doing things that give your life meaning.
