Regina Kerns, JABA’s Community Relations Manager is entrusted with community outreach to promote JABA’s overall service mission with a concentration on the Adult Care Centers located in Charlottesville and Louisa and Mountainside Senior Living, a JABA assisted living community located in Crozet.  Regina moved to Charlottesville in 2012 after living in Indiana for nearly 30 years. A move with the best interest of her parents in mind.

As our local, federally mandated, area on aging, The Jefferson Area Board for Aging (JABA) is a nonprofit, established in 1975 to serve the needs of the community in the Thomas Jefferson Planning district. This includes the city of Charlottesville and the counties of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson.

Working with state and local government, educational institutions, private citizens, businesses, and other nonprofit organizations, JABA consistently rises to the challenge of its mission: to promote, establish and preserve sustainable communities for healthy aging that benefit individuals and families of all ages.

JABA has been recognized repeatedly as a national leader in providing services to the aging community. Thanks to JABA’s tireless commitment to plan and coordinate regional efforts on aging, Central Virginia was named as one of the United States top seven “Livable Communities for All Ages.”
