“I want to live in a community that helps me thrive, adapt and cope with changes ahead. TroveStreet® was designed to do that!”
Cathy Bollinger, TroveStreet Founder
The choices we make today impact our future. But beyond possibly saving for retirement, most people don’t think about how our needs may change as we grow older and the way those changes could impact our quality of life.
We help you learn the top things to consider so you can make more informed decisions about where and how you live as you age. We want to help you explore the “why and what” on aging-in-place topics so you can select the best option at the right time for you. Whether reading our blogs, attending our seminars, or engaging in our services, we provide unbiased content for you to determine what best aligns with your needs and wants.
And, when you are too busy or don’t have the bandwidth for going through options, TroveStreet can help you narrow the choices, saving you valuable time and energy.
Aging-in-place is not defined by your age or the type of home you live in. There are many variables that go into aging-in-place, including your finances, support system, and openness towards change. Aging-in-place requires us to think holistically about our aging, which means thinking beyond our health, and acknowledging the integral role our home, location, transportation, community engagement, and finances play to our aging well experience.
Aging-in-place doesn’t happen to you, it is a process, something that needs structure, effort, and purpose. It is situational, conditional, and distinct for each person; there’s no one size fits all solution.
By focusing on aging-in-place, you are ensuring you are in control of what happens to you.
We are a resource for adults, regardless of age, income, ability, race, sexual orientation, gender, education, religion, or location. Everyone benefits from learning about aging-in-place concepts to help you plan both now, and in the future, for your best quality aging experience. Our content is applicable, no matter where you live, and we also offer a depth of knowledge of resources in York County, PA, and the surrounding areas.
A lot of our content is free; our mission is to help you learn about aging-in-place concepts to reduce making decisions during times of heightened stress or crisis, avoid having someone make decisions for you, or doing nothing and settling for status quo. This is why we offer a 30-minute consultation with our Executive Director and aging-in-place seminars free of charge.
If you find you’d like to engage with TroveStreet’s team and resources for more in-depth assistance, there is a nominal charge for our service. Contact us directly to learn more about this. From time to time, we may also charge for a specific seminar offered, based on the scope of the topic and speaker.
TroveStreet®, Powered by Embracing Aging, is an initiative of York County Community Foundation (YCCF), located in York, PA.
YCCF is one of the fastest-growing community foundations in Pennsylvania because it has stepped forward to play a central role in creating a vibrant York County. Tapping into the region’s long-held philanthropic spirit and community pride, YCCF engages donors, provides community leadership, invests in high-impact initiatives, and builds an endowment for future generations. It envisions a growing, united, and prosperous York County that provides unsurpassed opportunities for all.
Embracing Aging (EA) is one of YCCF’s high-impact initiatives. Launched in 2013, EA carries on the legacy of donor, Anna Gardner, who 110+ years ago gifted her family’s estate to the care of older single women. After growing the estate, a mansion was purchased and named the Hahn Home. For 40 years, the women residing there had their living expenses paid for by funds from the estate. After the sale of the Hahn Home, the Hahn Home Fund was established at YCCF. Today, Ms. Gardner’s legacy lives on through EA.
EA provides education and advocacy to advance aging-in-place concepts and planning. EA also strives to dismantle ageism and build age-equity to help us thrive as we age.
TroveStreet was launched in 2022 as a resource to help educate individuals and the community on aging-in-place.
We considered many names as we went through the naming cycle. “TroveStreet” wasn’t even among the initial options we considered. However, our top two choices from that first round were both too similar to existing entities, so we went back and rethought our strategy. We are happy we did because we like TroveStreet much better than anything else we considered!
The name TroveStreet means to us a combination of the expression “treasure trove” — as in, a treasure trove of guidance for visitors — and the casual, friendly atmosphere you’d find in a neighborhood.
