The Highlands Ranch Metro District is pleased to announce Jill Hall has been hired as Senior Services Manager. With more than 30 years of experience in managing senior facilities and programs, Hall will oversee the operation of the future Highlands Ranch Senior Center, which will be owned and operated by the Highlands Ranch Metro District.
“I am very excited to be an integral part of the new Highlands Ranch Senior Center and expanding the existing senior services programs. My experience overseeing the operation of 21 senior centers in Baltimore County, Maryland, and serving as the current chair of the National Institute of Senior Centers (NISC), will ensure that Highlands Ranch seniors have a diverse array of physical, social, health, enrichment, leadership and volunteer opportunities in which to participate, as well as access to community and county resources and support,” said Hall.
“We have created a dedicated senior services division within our organization. Jill’s new position demonstrates the Metro District’s commitment to expanding this division to serve the growing population of seniors in Highlands Ranch,” said Metro District Director of Parks, Recreation & Open Space Tammy Tucker. “Jill’s responsibility for the Metro District’s senior services division includes the Highlands Ranch Senior Center, senior programs, and senior resources. We’re very excited for Jill to meet local seniors, caregivers and our community partners so we can continue collaborations in our service to the senior population and their families.”
Hall recently moved to Colorado after working for the last 15 years as the Division Chief, Senior Centers and Community Services, for the Baltimore County Department of Aging in Towson, Maryland.
“As we finalize the program schedule for the center, we want it to be reflective of the interests of Highlands Ranch’s seniors, so we will be inviting suggestions from residents on what they want to do while at the center, and offer a number of demo days where they can experience programs and activities before they sign up for classes. In early 2024, we will also start recruiting volunteers, program instructors and part time staff in preparation for our spring opening. I am sure the senior center will quickly become the focal point for programs and events for those age 55 and above,” Hall added.
“Jill’s arrival marks a new chapter in the progression of the Highlands Ranch Senior Center,” said Metro District General Manager Stephanie Stanley. “I am very excited to have Jill on board to begin engaging with the public to refine and expand the services and programs we provide. Our board of directors is proud to offer the new facility, its programs and services to our community.”
Construction is underway on the Highlands Ranch Senior Center. It is anticipated to open in early 2024. The facility site is located on the south side of Highlands Ranch Parkway, east of the Broadway intersection.
