Founded in 1968, JASA (Jewish Association Serving the Aging) is one of New York’s largest and most trusted non-profit agencies serving older adults in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, and Long Island. We provide life sustaining social services for seniors and peace of mind for their families and friends.
JASA was created out of a decision by the Federation's Committee on Communal Planning, which recognized that an escalating number of older New Yorkers required programs and services to meet their needs so they could remain in their communities with dignity and autonomy.
Since its founding in 1968, JASA has been a member of the UJA-Federation of New York network.
JASA serves over 43,000 older adults, of all races, religions, and economic backgrounds in the New York metropolitan area. We also serve adults 18+ in our adult protective services and community guardian programs.
YES! We fulfill the Jewish value of honoring the aging while serving adults of all races, religions, and economic backgrounds.
