Mission Statement

The Jewish Council for the Aging (JCA) helps older adults in the Greater Washington, D.C. region maintain independence, dignity, vitality and self-respect.  It also helps people of different generations understand, learn from and care for one another.  JCA accomplishes this through a myriad of community-based programs built upon vibrant programmatic partnerships with funders, fellow charities and local communities; and by providing opportunities for volunteers to make the National Capital Area a great place to age. Although our Jewish heritage and values guide our vision and work, JCA is a recognized leader in meeting the needs of seniors and caregivers regardless of their religious beliefs.

Program Description:

Connect-A-Ride is a free information and referral service that helps seniors and disabled adults of all ages to find the transportation they need. In English, Spanish and other languages, too, our Certified Information & Mobility Specialists helped 2,394 clients learn about local rides, routes and resources. Every organization has a signature program. At JCA, that program is the Rose & Harold Kramer Center on Transportation. In Fiscal Year 2013, ending June 30, 2013, ts 11 wheelchair-accessible ElderBuses made 36,972 trips, travelling 100,504 miles within the National Capital Region. Every one of its drivers has a commercial driver’s license and is specially trained to meet seniors’ needs. During Fiscal Year 2013, those drivers were on the road an amazing 11,850 hours! They transported passengers to our adult day programs and other essential destinations -- to a world that for many would have been impossible reach. “Most of my passengers are in their 80s and 90s, and I can assure you, they love my bus,” said Chris Prinz, who has been a JCA driver for more than 25 years. “It’s not just because it gets them where they need to go (which is important!), but because it helps them feel less alone. The bus is their place to talk, laugh and share memories with people their age.” We launched the Escorted Transportation Pilot Project, providing 125 escorted rides for 50 low-income seniors who could not travel alone and needed door-through-door assistance. Those rides enabled them to reach medical appointments, grocery stores and other destinations important to their wellbeing. Our Ride Smart Workshops include classroom training and group excursions to help older adults use Metrobus, Metrorail and other carriers. Scores of older Montgomery Countians participated, and a special grant enabled us to teach an additional 110 low-income, job-seekers age 55+ (most 70+) to use the Metro system so that they could reach the jobs they desperately need. We convened quarterly meetings of the Transportation Providers Roundtable, a forum at which transportation providers shared best practices.

Program Description:

Right now, someone is taking the job you want!” declares our Career Gateway! brochure. “Tired of sending resumes with no response? Overwhelmed by Internet job search sites? Unsure how to market yourself? The Career Gateway! is here to help.” Designed and run especially for jobseekers age 50 and better, Gateway provides intensive training and take-home materials along with mentoring and other forms of individual attention from volunteers who contributed 2,000 hours during the year. In Fiscal Year 2013, which ended on June 30, 2013, 47 students graduated the program. The real magic, however, is that over the past two years, 70 percent of the graduates who were continuing to actively look for work landed a job within 12 weeks of their last class. (Many of those new hires had been unemployed for two years or more!) “You gave me self-confidence,” said one participant, “and, boy did I need that! This program helped me realize what I could do for a company, and it…helped me present myself in a positive way.” The JCA Senior Community Service Employment Program of Montgomery and Frederick Counties provided paid, on-the-job training for 112 jobseekers age 55 and older who had incomes at or below 125 percent of the Federal poverty line. Our trainees provided a total of 77,446 community service hours at 54 charities and government agencies that included the B’nai B’rith Homecrest House and Holy Cross Hospital, the National Institutes of Health and JCA, and that work was worth $617,632! During the year, we helped place eight of those determined men and women in regular, paid jobs through which they earned an average of $11 an hour for 28 hours of weekly work. Thus, those once-unemployed seniors are now making $125,577 in annualized, taxable wages, contributing to their families, the local and national economies, and their self-esteem. Eighty JCA volunteers and a phalanx of staff welcomed 3,560 older jobseekers and 88 exhibiting organizations to our 50+ Employment Expo where we offered resume critique, a cyber-search café, 14 educational workshops and, of course, plenty of opportunities for jobseekers and recruiters to meet, all for free.

Program Description:

The Albert & Helen Misler Adult Day Center in Rockville offers nursing and social work services, activities and nutritious kosher meals to older adults with physical, cognitive or emotional challenges. Its participants enjoy exercise, field trips, games and stimulating discussion in a supportive and enriched environment, which operates on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. During Fiscal Year 2013, we provided 7,873 participant days of care, serving 105 vulnerable elders while giving families a critically needed break from their caregiving responsibilities. The Samuel Gorlitz Kensington Club offers activities, camaraderie and coping skills for people in the early stages of diagnosed memory loss. Participants enjoy stimulating cognitive and physical programs and morning coffee and lunch while caregivers receive respite and support. During the year, we served 38 members of the Club, and we moved the program from Temple Emanuel in Kensington, Maryland to our own Ann L. Bronfman Center in Rockville. That move was a giant step toward realizing our dream of establishing the Center as a vibrant program hub. It’s become that and more! Our compassionate professionals facilitated Caregiver Support Groups during which family members shared their experiences in caring for older loved ones and learned from one another with a mix of laughter, tears and understanding. In addition, we ran Early-Stage Dementia Support Groups, offering eight weeks of education, information and support to care partners as well as to the individuals in their care.

Program Description:

In Fiscal Year 2013, 499 students age 50+ participated in 3,385 classroom hours of instruction to hone their computer skills at our four SeniorTech Computer Training Centers. There, 49 volunteer instructors and aides, all age 50+ (and most age 70+) contributed 3,140 hours to the program -- teaching, coaching, planning, and adapting curriculum while maintaining the computers in their classrooms. Other JCA University training programs ran the gamut from financial management for women to driver safety. Our 20th Annual Productive Aging Award Dinner proclaimed that ability is ageless while raising funds to support JCA programs year-round. At the Dinner, beloved philanthropists Arlene and Robert Kogod won the JCA Humanitarian Award of 2013, while Doris Kearns Goodwin (Presidential biographer) and Richard N. Goodwin (Presidential speechwriter) shared the year’s Productive Aging Award. Four hundred attendees cheered. The JCA website attracted 1.8 million hits. As you might imagine, most of those originated from U.S. users, though 1,699 hits originated in China, 668 in the Ukraine, 162 in The Netherlands, and thousands more from other nations. Among the most popular pages were Land a Job and Job Openings (which together garnered 44,714 hits), About Us (22,297) and Programs (21,899). Our Aging Q&A page, which contains resources for aging well, had 14,204 hits, and our Links to other organizations page had 13,839. “You were a light in the darkness – a blessing,” said the woman who called to thank JCA for operating the Steven M. Reich HomeCare Resource Center, a free service that explains the many kinds of in-home care that could help her grandfather. We gave her three referrals with an offer of many more if she needed them. Calls to our HomeCare Center and Rose Benté Lee Senior HelpLine concerned nearly every aspect of human existence, from grandparents’ rights to palliative care, from durable medical equipment to age discrimination in the workplace. More callers than ever, however, sought employment assistance, often with desperation in their voice. By number of inquiries, employment nearly unseated “housing and related inquiries” from its 40-year-long top spot. In collaboration with Washington Jewish Week, we expanded our series of consumer guidebooks, distributing printed copies at expos and in the newspaper while making downloadable editions available for free via www.AccessJCA.org. New titles included Staying Sharp! Tips for Brain Health and A Death With Dignity. Hundreds of Facebook friends and visitors made our Facebook page at www.fb.com/AccessJCA a go-to destination for information about aging well.

The Heyman Interages® Center also enabled 263 students to befriend 281 seniors in adult day centers, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. With BBYO and Charles E. Smith Life Communities, JCA demonstrated what fun an Intergenerational Seniors Prom could be. The Prom was a program of Good Deeds Day, an international day of volunteer service that The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington brought to the National Capital Area At a Capitol Hill ceremony, Generations United and the MetLife Foundation named Montgomery County one of America's best four intergenerational communities, calling it “a community for a lifetime,” and crediting Interages for helping the County be such a fine place to age. We helped scores of professionals and organizations learn from our success in building age-integrated communities.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

JCA represents something different to each and every man and woman we proudly serve.  To the isolated senior with no means of getting around, we are the smiling ElderBus driver who cheerfully helps with canes, walkers and wheelchairs and even carries packages with a smile.  To the concerned family member suddenly faced with overwhelming health or home care issues, we are the confident voice of an information specialist who understands precisely the services needed to care for a beloved parent or spouse and can access our unique, comprehensive database to find needed resources close to home.  For the senior who is frail or suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or other challenges, we are a safe and caring place that provides dignified assistance at adult day centers that are second to none.  To the older jobseeker, we are a friend, advocate, teacher and guide. Last year, JCA served more than 31,000 older people of all faiths, ethnicities and income levels. We helped them avoid isolation and live independently.  We helped them thrive.
