JASA is the go-to agency serving older adults in New York City, providing critical services to over 40,000 people annually. Founded 50+ years ago, JASA is a leading expert and innovator in aging services that recognizes the diversity among the aging population and honors older adults as vital members of society.
JASA’s life-changing support services, interventions and partnerships promote aging with a purpose and provide autonomy for older adults to remain in their homes and communities. JASA operates ten affordable housing properties, is a licensed home care agency and offers a breadth of integrative services citywide spanning free legal services, health and mental health services, home-delivered meals, social programming at senior centers and community trainings on elder abuse, peer health support, caregiver assistance and more.
At JASA, we are particularly affected by COVID-19 crisis. The 40,000 older New Yorkers who rely on us are more at risk both from the virus itself as well as being isolated in their homes.
In March 2020, we launched the JASAChat program to connect volunteers with seniors for a weekly phone or video chat. The response has been remarkable — to date, we’ve made over 650 matches. True, long lasting friendships have formed.
