More about the center

The Austin Geriatric Center, a 501-c-3 non-profit organization, is the founder and operator of the Rebekah Baines Johnson Center (RBJ). Our mission is to provide low-income elderly and handicapped people with housing and services specifically designed to meet their physical, social and psychological needs, and to promote their health, security, happiness and usefulness in longer living. Our vision is to increase the number of affordable housing units, within a supportive community, for seniors and adults who are disabled to empower them to age in place and live independently. RBJ is an independent living facility (there are no nursing services or meals provided).

The current RBJ tower has 250 units. In keeping with our vision, The Austin Geriatric Center is currently building a new apartment community adjacent to the RBJ tower which will house an additional 250 residents. As the new complex nears the end of construction, RBJ will renovate the current tower. At the end of this ambitious project, the Austin Geriatric Center will have doubled in size and be able to offer 500 affordable apartments on beautiful Town Lake.

Due to construction, RBJ is not renting units at this time and does not expect to rent units until 2019 or 2020. If you would like to be on the notification list for new apartments, please write to RBJ Office, 21 Waller, Austin, Texas 78702. Be sure to include your mailing address and phone number.
