Episode 8: Erin Hilligan on Ebenezer Ridges, an Intergenerational Shared Site
Twenty years ago, Ebenezer Ridges in Burnsville, MN, offered a skilled nursing facility and an adult day services program. Today, they're an intergenerational shared site with HUD-funded senior housing, an assisted living facility on campus, and a child care center.
They're featured in our recent report with The Eisner Foundation, The Best of Both Worlds: A Closer Look at Spaces That Connect Young and Old.
Erin Hilligan started out there as an intern 25 years ago. She's now vice president of Operations. She tells our listeners why she came back and shares the story of Ebenezer Ridges' transformation to a space that serves young and old together.
