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


While our region offers multiple options both public and private for transportation to our centers, we recommend the services of JAUNT. The familiar JAUNT vans offer convenient and fully accessible service. Drivers are courteous and caring. And, fares are always reasonable.

JAUNT agents are familiar with JABA’s day programs and can help with scheduling tailored to your needs. They deliver daily to JABA centers. To find out more about Jaunt, visit the JAUNT web site. Or, call them at (434) 296-3184.

Charlottesville-area residents can also use Charlottesville Transit Service. We suggest you visit the Charlottesville Transit Web site directly for information about fares. For information regarding transportation to and from Greene County, please visit the Greene County Transit  web site.
