$180 serves 18 home-delivered meals

Can I afford food or medicine today? That is the difficult choice many older adults have to make. The situation is more serious for individuals who are homebound, who are not able to shop or cook for themselves, and have no family to help.

JASA serves nearly 1 million healthy kosher and non-kosher meals to homebound older adults and to groups at our senior centers each year.

JASA provides more than just a meal for older adults: we are their family, their social connection, their safety net.

YOU can support JASA and be a lifeline.

$500 supports five family caregivers

The role of caregiver to an ill or disabled older family member can arise unexpectectly. The healthcare system is complicated, costly, and overwhelming. JASA's Caregiver Program offers caregivers a roadmap, support, and resources.

JASA's holistic approach addresses the needs of nearly 500 caregivers. Our program provides in-home care by a trained aide as well as out-of-the-home socialization at a day center. This support allows caregivers to attend to their own needs. JASA support groups provide a meaningful connection to individuals dealing with similar situations and stresses.

YOU can make sure JASA is here to help caregivers in crisis.

$1,000 protects one victim of elder abuse

Elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation are under-reported and widespread: the abuser is often a family member; victims may be afraid of reprisal; there is a cultural stigma; and, in some cases, the individual is vulnerable because of compromised physical and mental health.

For the past 20 years, JASA's innovative Elder Abuse Prevention and Intervention Program has utilized a team approach that has helped tens of thousands of victims successfully resolve crisis situations.

While our attorneys are available for legal representation, social workers provide individual and group counseling as well as assistance accessing support services to over 1,000 older adults.

YOU can be part of the team to protect older New Yorkers from abuse and exploitation.

$2,500 builds community space at a senior housing location

As the affordable housing crisis in New York City continues to grow, low-income older adults are particularly at risk of living in unsafe environments and becoming homeless.

JASA is an industry leader in providing safe, affordable, and accessable apartments for 2,400 older adults and disabled individuals. We own, manage, and operate 10 buildings throughout New York City. In addition, we are the non-profit partner on three new affordable senior buildings. Once completed, the new locations will be home to over 400 older adults in the Bronx and Brooklyn.

Building community is a key component to our senior housing. All buildings include on-site social services, with staff fluent in a variety of languages. Many buildings have senior centers on premises where residents can go for a meal, a class, and to connect with their neighbors.

YOU can help build community at JASA.

$5,000 provides legal assistance for five clients

JASA's attorneys are passionate advocates who provide legal assistance to over 2,000 adults each year.

JASA's Legal Services counsels older adults on issues related to housing, evictions and foreclosures, fraud and scam prevention, elder abuse intervention, and estate planning. Attorneys litigate matters that have a significant impact on public policy, such as a recent class action lawsuit which won back affordable housing rights for 18,000 older New Yorkers.

YOU can prevent an older adult from experiencing homelessness by helping to provide the legal assistance they need.
