Do you have a certain skill you really want to use in a volunteer role but can’t find an opportunity that is a good fit? Get in touch! We’d love to learn about what you want out of a volunteering role, as staff often have special projects that could use volunteer support.

Louisa County Commission on Aging (COA) Board Member

JABA works closely with COA to gain insight on the aging community and inform decisions on transportation, medical care, and caregiving. The COA fulfills this mission by working with residents and community organizations like JABA to understand the needs of older adults and their caregivers, supporting local aging-related events, holding monthly public meetings and reporting its findings to the Louisa County Board of Supervisors. COA is searching for a volunteer board member who lives in Louisa County to participate in in-person monthly meetings, attend events, and promote COA in the community. Reach out to Jonathan Tustin at [email protected] for more information.
