Mission Statement

The goal is to foster independence, seeking to change the conditions that pose barriers for those who wish to remain a strong and vital part of the community. JAAA advocates on aging issues, builds community partnerships and implements programs to help older adults live independent and dignified lives.

Description

We have over 40 years experience administering and coordinating services for older adults. As the population has changed over time - with people living longer but facing chronic illness and frailty - JAAA services have evolved to meet these new and more challenging needs. JAAA strives to maximize service potential and avoid duplication of effort, while also collaborating with other groups to sponsor events of interest to older adults and their caregivers. The mission of JAAA - to make it easier for older persons to live independently in the comfort of their own surroundings - is not only cost effective, is the preferred choice for hundreds of older adults in Shawnee, Jefferson and Douglas Counties.
