Our History

Over 30 years ago, a group of local activists, organizations and agencies came together to launch West Side One Stop for Coordinated Senior Services, now called One Stop at JASA. Their goal: to provide seniors with a single location to apply for all benefits and entitlements. For many years, One Stop at JASA housed workers from other agencies in addition to its own small staff.

In the mid-1980s, when cutbacks forced agencies to withdraw their workers, One Stop at JASA raised funds to make up for the loss in human resources. That entrepreneurial spirit has been a hallmark of One Stop at JASA.

In 1992, as the problem of elder abuse surfaced and more and more victims turned to One Stop at JASA, we developed the One Stop at JASA Senior Support Project, a program of counseling and budgetary assistance, information, referral, and outreach that provides help and hope for victims and their care givers.

In 2000, One Stop at JASA received a bequest from Bianca Rosenberg, founding board member, which has enhanced our financial stability and has served as an incentive for us to evaluate our current services and effectively plan future growth.

In November 2013,JASA and One Stop announced an affiliation, bringing together two highly respected organizations and maximizing the spectrum of services that support safe and independent aging in the community.
 
Today, One Stop at JASA is a model of coordinated services.One Stop at JASA is widely and favorably known throughout the community for the connections it has made for elderly New Yorkers, and for the respectful manner in which it serves its clients. In a recent survey, over 70% of our clients reported they learned about One Stop at JASA through friends or family members, who have been clients, and nearly 90% rated our assistance as Effective.

One Stop at JASA is proud of its legacy and will continue to help older adults remain independent and live more securely in their own homes, as well as to search for new ways to help them improve their lives.
