Helen Hamlin is a 90-year old New Yorker with one goal in mind: to make her city the most age-friendly city in the world!
Helen has been actively working with NYAM and our partners to think critically about the ways in which New York can be a great place to live for people of all ages. As a member of NYAM's Age-friendly NYC initiative, she, and many others like her, have lobbied for longer traffic lights, greater involvement from the business community to recognize the needs of older adults, special senior swim hours at many of NYC's public pools, and bus shelters with comfortable seating, just to name a few.
"NYAM's Age-friendly NYC initiative has made it possible for me and millions of older New Yorkers to remain vibrant and resourceful members of society." --Helen Hamlin
For more than 160 years, NYAM has been dedicated to advancing the health of people in cities. Gifts and bequests sustain this mission. Creating a fund for the future enables a donor to make a contribution that will continue to grow, have a long-range impact, and create a living memorial to a loved and respected person.
NYAM established The John Stearns Legacy Society to honor individuals who remember NYAM in their will and estate plans or have given a minimum of $25,000 to an endowment fund.
