JASA Chat Volunteering

JASA, the go-to agency for older adults, is inviting people of all ages to give back this holiday season! This holiday season, 1 in 4 older adults will lack regular social contact, an issue exacerbated by the pandemic. To help address social isolation among seniors, the JASAChat program connects volunteers with seniors for a weekly phone or video chat. This weekly telephone visiting program does more than just bring a brief connection to aging people — 88% of program matches have continued their relationships past the initial three month commitment, and long-lasting relationships have formed.
