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.”

Women United in Philanthropy

Tracy Meade, a member of the Blue Ridge Mountain chapter, will share information about Women United in Philanthropy, a local organization what works under the umbrella of the United Way – Jefferson area. The mission of the organization is to engage with like-minded women, learn about philanthropy, and leverage collective giving to benefit local women and children. They do this through membership, and the more each member gives, the more the group gives to selected charities that focus on supporting women and children. Tracy is a member of the membership committee. To date, they have awarded nearly $500,000 in grants to local non-profit organizations. The organization’s grant committee identifies potential grant recipients, and members vote to identify which organizations will receive a grant. Their annual lunch on September 11 at the Boar’s Head Inn will reveal the winners of two $30,000 awards for 2018 – and Tracy will share this information at our meeting.
