JCA is your expert on aging and connecting the generations.

Directory Cover ImageJCA provides access, answers and opportunities for older adults and family caregivers throughout the Greater Washington, D.C. region.

Our award-winning programs enable older men and women to maintain their independence, dignity, vitality and self-respect despite physical, financial and emotional challenges. They connect the generations. And they shatter stereotypes about growing up and growing older as they help make the National Capital Area a great place to age.

Notice: Within the limits of its resources, JCA serves people of all faiths and from all walks of life. Indeed, we try to be as inclusive as possible in all that we do. Sometimes, however, JCA may deny a person or group the option to enroll or to continue to participate in all or particular programs and services. We reserve the right to do so, at our sole discretion, should we believe that our action is in the best interest of the individual or program or for any other reason not precluded by applicable law.
