HAH Steering Committee

Formally founded in July, 2015, ​Harpswell Aging at Home (HAH) is a grassroots community organization created, maintained, and led by older Harpswell residents. We are committed to fostering low-cost or no-cost initiatives that help older adults thrive while aging at home. ​Our overall goal is to help older adults find the services they need to age in place.​​  

The Community Assessment found 41% of survey respondents who were unaware of elder services also needed to access them. As we age, we need access to information about services available to help.

Why We Decided To Take Action!

With an average age of 56.9 years, Harpswell is Maine's 'oldest' town of more than 3,000 residents. Our number of older residents  is growing while our younger population is declining.  This makes it difficult for older adults to find local help.

Since more than one-third of older Harpswell residents do not have enough resources to meet basic expenses, many folks cannot pay for the simple home repair and help with chores they need.
