SeniorNavigator Site

clientuploads/Adults/SeniorNavigatorLogo.jpgThe JCCNV is an official SeniorNavigator site, with computers available for accessing the SeniorNavigator network, a statewide, nonprofit website designed to address health and aging concerns and provide information about the approximately 19,000 local programs and services available to seniors, their families and caregivers.

Visitors to the SeniorNavigator website simply type in a keyword, along with their zip code, city or county, to access services available right in their own neighborhoods.

The comprehensive service at lists sources for everything from where to get blood pressure screenings or flu shots to bone density tests or support groups to yoga classes. For more information, call Pam Wiener at (703) 537-3061.

Social Action Projects

Food for Others especially needs evaporated milk, beans, pasta, pasta sauce, canned tomatoes, canned vegetables, and canned fruit. Remember to bring a can and/or a nonperishable food item to the JCCNV whenever you come, to be donated to Food for Others. Please remember, if you are bringing something from your pantry, to check the expiration dates on all items, including canned goods! For your convenience, a collection bin is located in the lobby. Thanks for your continued support.

Help Save the Environment

Recycle your Cell Phone, iPhone and BlackBerry

When you replace your cell phone, iPhone or BlackBerry, bring your old one to the JCCNV. By doing this, you will enable the Adult Services Department to make money while also helping to save the environment. We will be collecting these items as an ongoing fundraising project. For your convenience, a collection basket is located at the JCCNV front desk. The newer the item, the more money we raise. However, no item is too old. So if you have old cell phones at home, you can now recycle them. Please let others know about this endeavor. And, as always, we appreciate your support.
