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.

Jefferson School City Center


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.

Volunteer Opportunities


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.”

Viable Futures

Aging in Place

For the past 30 years, JABA has added dignity, security, independence, and fulfillment to the lives of older adults and their families. Experts agree that home is best and our mission is to help elders live in the community of their choice for as long as possible. We know this is an important key to helping people live better. Longer.

However, while staying at home may be most desirable, JABA understands that an older loved one living at home alone can create challenges for their children and caregivers. Do they need companionship? Will they remember to eat properly? Who can you trust to come to the house to assist with broken appliances, house work or office assistance? JABA offers a range of services provided through My Home for Life and Care Advantage Plus which may suit your needs. JABA also owns and operates Mountainside Senior Living a stellar, affordable assisted living community for elders who decide to call Mountainside their home.
