We help older adults in the Greater Washington, DC region maintain independence, dignity, vitality and self-respect. We also help people from different generations understand, learn from and care for one another. JCA proudly serves people of all faiths, ethnicities and walks of life.
JCA is a trusted expert on aging and intergenerational connections, having served Greater DC since 1973. Our programs address some of the biggest challenges faced by older adults and their families, and we provide meaningful ways for seniors to stay connected to the community they cherish.

We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for all ages, encompassing a wide range of personal passions and skill sets.
