Are you interested in helping adults age in the community? The UACOA is seeking interested applicants who reside in Upper Arlington or work or serve older adults in Upper Arlington.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for an individual who is passionate about helping older adults secure resources to help them age successfully in the community.

Community Impact

In 2021, a community assessment was conducted through the Upper Arlington Commission on Aging with support from staff and students of Age-Friendly Columbus and Franklin County, the Upper Arlington Commission on Aging Board of Directors and ETC Institute to help define the perceived needs and assets of older adults living with the community of Upper Arlington Ohio.

This assessment was made possible by the generous support of the Upper Arlington Community Foundation and the Upper Arlington Senior Association, Senior Advisory Council.

You can access the report here.


We are grateful for the growing number of organizations and individuals who support the UACOA with funding. Stay tuned as we add more of their logos!
