Since its founding in 1973, the Jewish Council for the Aging® (JCA®) has been helping older adults in the Greater Washington, D.C. region maintain independence, dignity, vitality and self-respect. It also helps people of different generations understand, learn from and care for one another. JCA accomplishes this by serving men and women of all faiths, ethnicities and walks of life, providing them a myriad of community-based programs that are built upon vibrant programmatic partnerships with funders, fellow charities and local communities; and by providing opportunities for its 700 volunteers to make the National Capital Area a great place to age.
