To advance our vision of an exemplary, thriving, engaged community rooted in Jewish values, the JCC of Greater Pittsburgh’s mission is to enrich our community by creating an environment that strengthens the physical, intellectual and spiritual well-being of individuals and families. The JCC is open to everyone regardless of race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability or sexual orientation. Additional Programs & Volunteer Opportunities CheckMates: Peer-led Telephone Reassurance Program for Older Adults. Phone calls re made once a week by volunteers at the JCC of Greater Pittsburgh and offers a connection between senior adult volunteers and older adults in our community who may be homebound, isolated, or lonely.  Donating your time to CheckMates is a rewarding way to make a difference in someone’s life and give back to your community.
