A Founding Family: JASA’s Earliest Champions

For 50 years, JASA has been an integral part of Patricia Green’s life. She was introduced to the agency by her in-laws who helped fund JASA’s original senior housing sites. Today, two JASA buildings are named for Pat’s late mother and father-in-law: the Evelyn and Louis A. Green Residence at Cooper Square in Manhattan and the Evelyn and Louis A. Green Residence in Far Rockaway.

“My family has always felt that we are a part of JASA,” Pat said. “My late mother-in-law and father-in-law were founders, and my late husband, Bill, served on the first Board of Trustees and continued to serve. After Bill passed away, I was proud to join the Board.”

“JASA provides a whole array of services that include housing, home-delivered meals, senior centers, and help in so many other areas. Our clients are amazing people, and our staff is extraordinarily knowledgeable, caring and compassionate.”

Pat joined JASA’s Board of Trustees in 2004. Pat and the Green family were recently given the JASA Legacy Award, which honors a significant, long-term contribution to JASA that has helped to enrich the lives of older adults in the New York metropolitan area. Their good deeds will live on through the generations and make a profound and lasting impact on all who have benefited from JASA’s services.

Pat lives in New York City, where, from 1978-1992, her late husband, Congressman S. William Green, represented the district that included Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
