The Jewish Seniors Alliance of Greater Vancouver is a non-profit volunteer driven organization for all seniors over the age of 55, regardless of their gender, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical/mental ability, socio-economic status and religious/political belief systems.
The Organization aims to inform, support and involve seniors in a contemporary complex world and to promote active community and social involvement and wellness. Acting on the needs of seniors in the Lower Mainland and their organizations, the JSA responds to concerns with governments, the public, agencies, and funding groups.
JSA’s Peer Support Program provides services to over 200 seniors by highly trained and motivated volunteers who are certified after 55 hours of training. JSA Peer Services include: Weekly Peer Support Sessions, Friendly Phone Calls, Friendly Home Visits, and Information Referrals. These services are provided free of charge.
Our outreach includes the JSA Senior Line Magazine, published three times annually, and distributed to over 5,000 households, community centres, seniors’ facilities, libraries, local pharmacies, and businesses.
