SEE YOUR IMPACT
The COVID-19 pandemic has left its mark on just about every aspect of life. Looking back at 2020, I reflect on the many obstacles we faced and the opportunities we created. The need for JASA services continues to increase, and the COVID-19 pandemic made that need abundantly clear. Hundreds of new requests for services came in weekly. During this unprecedented time, your support enabled JASA to continue to adapt, innovate, and meet the evolving needs of older adults.
The numbers enclosed in this report are breathtaking, but they don’t tell the full story. We want you to meet the determined staff who have been out on the frontlines during the pandemic. We want you to hear from the remarkable seniors you’ve helped this year as they faced extraordinary challenges. Your generosity delivered emergency meals, thousands of wellness calls, and virtual programs to keep seniors active, supported, and engaged. You gave seniors and their families a safety net when they needed it the most.
For 52 years, JASA has been the go-to agency for all older New Yorkers. With your continued partnership, I am confident we will continue to be that lifeline. These stories of perseverance, strength, and belonging are because of you - our caring community of supporters.
Thank you for your commitment to JASA and the 40,000 older adults we serve each year. JASA is so grateful to you, and to all of our donors, supporters, volunteers, staff members, and other stakeholders who make this work possible. Your support has a significant impact, improving the lives of older New Yorkers and honoring them as vital members of society.
I hope you share pride in all that we were able to accomplish together.
Our deepest thanks,
Chief Executive Officer, JASA
