At JABA, our mission is to ensure that individuals and families live better. We believe that living as part of a community promotes healthy aging, so all JABA owned and run living options promote a sense of community. Whether you are seeking independent living or living with assistance, JABA continues to establish and preserve affordable living communities that increase options for living better.
Living as an elder should be an enjoyable part of your life. Why not enjoy yourself as part of a community that learns, plays and works together? At JABA, we have designed our Community Centers and our Adult Care Centers to promote fun and fellowship.
JABA is all about lending support to seniors in need of assistance. Whether that includes basic information, case management, insurance counseling, home delivered meals — or any of the many other available services — we want you to think of JABA as a source of support for you or your loved ones. Most of our support is offered as a gift to those who cannot pay. See individual programs for more details.
JABA is able to do all that it does because of generous volunteers and donors. We value contributions of time as well as dollars and promise to put your talents and your donations to very good use.
In the past five years, government funding has diminished. Luckily, individual and corporate contributions have begun to rise. Your assistance is greatly appreciated and needed.
What’s good for us as we age is good for our entire community — from planning for neighborhood growth, to promoting local foods and collaborating for the best use of resources. This is the philosophy behind JABA’s mission, “to promote, establish and preserve sustainable communities for healthy aging that benefit individuals and families of all ages.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New bumper sticker from JABA celebrates the inevitable; helps spread word on how to find answers.
Charlottesville, VA (December 14, 2011)—- We’re all aging, from the moment we’re born. Now drivers in Central Virginia can celebrate their own successful chronological progress by proudly displaying the succinct and egalitarian message - Age Happens.
“The bumper sticker is our lighthearted way of reminding Central Virginians that when they have questions about aging issues, they can turn to JABA,“ says Gordon Walker, CEO of JABA. “And because Age Happens to us all, JABA is here to serve not only older adults, but their families, care givers and loved ones, whatever their incomes or backgrounds. Just think of us as a GPS system for navigating the road to healthy aging.“
Members of the public are invited to celebrate their own aging process by picking up an Age Happens bumper sticker at any of JABA’s eight community centers or at JABA’s offices at 674 Hillsdale Drive in Charlottesville. Check here for center locations or call (434) 817-5222. Supplies are limited.
