Livable Communities: About Us

AARP Livable Communities supports the efforts of neighborhoods, towns, cities and rural areas to become great places for people of all ages. We believe that communities should provide safe, walkable streets; age-friendly housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents of all ages to participate in community life.
