AustinUP is a community alliance committed to making Central Texas a place where older adults live full, engaged lives.

We work to prioritize the unmet needs of the Central Texas aging population, tap the assets of older adults to improve our community, and embrace innovation and creativity in the pursuit of an age-friendly culture.

What we believe:

  • We need to retire the word retired.
  • As long as our hearts are beating, we must engage in the world around us.
  • Older adults are an invaluable community resource, waiting to be tapped.

Our vision is to create a region that responds to aging as a dynamic rather than a stagnant force.  We are all aging, all the time. And we want to make Central Texas a place that supports each of us, at every age.

Because our community is changing – and it’s not just how you think.
