It Can Be Different...
Village of Hope, Inc. is an intentional and inclusive M.A.G.I.C. community (multi-ability, multi-generational, inclusive, community) where individuals of all ages and abilities are welcomed and appreciated as unique and important to the overall functioning of the community. This one-of-a-kind community, with the dedication of its visionary, Kathleen Gillespie, CEO of Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Inc., and her dedicated team will create a living community unlike any other.
Village of Hope transforms a decommissioned school property and its surrounding 23-acre pastural setting into a model community designed in partnership with its residents to be open to Pennsylvanians of all incomes and abilities. Located in LeContes-Mills, PA, Village of Hope, offers the natural beauty of Western Pennsylvania that will develop into a thriving community fit to serve the needs of all individuals.
Village of Hope thrives off of the members that make up the community. Our community supports individuals experiencing cognitive changes, adult children with disabilities, grandparents raising grandchildren as well as families and single individuals.
Village of Hope, Inc. provides each individual with independence, dignity, and support through the living accommodations provided by the thoughtfully crafted and unique design of Minka Homes. These homes are essentially smart homes that can provide in-home care across the life span. These homes will be Telehealth ready, provide hospital-at-home care as well as end-of-life care focused on quality and dignity.
The Village Hall, the hub of the community, will provide much-needed community services such as health services, grocery services, café, restaurant, and community arts and theatre spaces. Village of Hope will serve not only its residents but also the greater Clearfield community now and long into the future.

CCAAA and Village of Hope, Inc. are partnering with Morrison Living to launch a pilot meal program that will bring quality nutrition to area seniors. During this pilot launch, these organizations will be focused on serving elderly couples, grandparents raising grandchildren, and individuals who may have family in the home providing care. The goal of these kits is to bring new recipes into the home, adding nutritious options to seniors' plates while creating more time spent together preparing the meals together. These meals are designed to be simple to create while adding value to the plate.
