For this month’s partner spotlight we had the privilege to interview Christy Boone. Christy Boone is the Special Project Coordinator at Direction Home of Eastern Ohio and recently became a member of HCP’s Active Transportation Action team! In her role she is working to develop Age Friendly communities and coordinating with the Kinship programs. Christy has been bringing the perspective of age friendly community design to Active Transportation projects ever since she joined the team which is why we are spotlighting her for Older Americans Month May 2023! Check out her interview to learn more about her work and what she hopes the community learns during Older Americans Month.
