Our History & Mission

The Jefferson Area Board for Aging (JABA) has been serving individuals and caregivers along the journey of aging since 1975. We are the gateway for information and support for seniors, adults with disabilities, and their families throughout central Virginia. In 1986, JABA created JABA, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit, to raise funds from private sources to enhance our programs and better serve the growing number of seniors in our area. Our mission is to promote, establish and preserve sustainable communities for healthy aging that benefit individuals and families of all ages.
