JSA is continuously looking at the needs of the Jewish Community Seniors. New issues become relevant, and as part of our research and programming, we respond to these needs. Government policies at all levels change, and JSA, through its affiliations with other advocacy groups, is made aware of these changes. We are prepared to take action to both inform and advocate for improved services beneficial to seniors.
The community changes and so does their needs. JSA is constantly assessing the type of services provided to the Jewish community, and if any gaps occur in these services, JSA is committed to advocate to the community organizations to fill the gaps and/or make changes for the better.
Realistically the total Jewish community of approximately 25,000 does not represent a large enough number to politically affect the changes that are needed in order to service seniors. JSA has formally joined with many advocacy groups in the larger community that together are working to effect systemic change to all kinds of services provided by the various levels of government.
Keep up to date with the Reports from the Office of the Seniors Advocate, both Annual Reports and News Releases.
