About Us

JSSA, a nonsectarian, nonprofit client-focused health and social service agency, has been helping individuals and families across the Greater Washington metropolitan area meet emotional, social, and physical challenges for more than 120 years. JSSA serves and supports more than 31,000 individuals and families annually through a wide range of counseling, educational, special needs services, in-home support, hospice and nursing care, and social services.

JSSA’s team of highly experienced and compassionate social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, care managers, counselors, specialized employment specialists and nurses work in close collaboration with healthcare providers, school staff and other professionals to provide a holistic approach to each individual or family’s care.

While JSSA’s approach to care is rooted in the Jewish values of repairing the world and helping others, we provide services to people of all faiths, regardless of their ability to pay. Our goal is to improve each life  we touch– no matter how young or how old.

Our Mission:

JSSA empowers individuals and families to achieve well-being across their lifespan.
