JBS was awarded the Positive Image in Aging award during the 2019 South Eastern Area Agencies on Aging (SE4A) conference in Nashville, TN on September 9th. Jacqueline Peeples, Assistant Director for JBS Residential program, accepted the award. The Middle Area Agency on Aging (M4A) nominated JBS for this award to recognize our work with older adults in our region. JBS has been a host agency in the Senior Employment Program since February 2018. This has been a win/win situation for all involved. We have hired all 8 seniors assigned to the JBS Residential program! By hiring them, JBS gained reliable and compassionate staff while also helping to overcome stereotypes of older workers, promote a positive image of aging workers, and helping older adults overcome financial instability.
