About Us

image03We at UP CARES are continually inspired by the positive impact of sports, recreation, and enrichment activities on our community of University Place. Though ours is a city rich with outdoor space, it is limited in its recreational program offerings. Therefore, UP CARES formed to collaborate with sports and recreational organizations throughout Pierce County to bring quality programs for our youth. We also work with the city’s Senior Center to increase and enhance the activities available to our aging population.

Since 2005, we have provided scholarships to under-served image02youth, allowing them to participate in organized sports, and have funded exciting activities such as technology classes to the UP Senior Center.

We will continue to do our best in serving the youth and seniors of our community.

Our 2015 Goals

  • Provide scholarships to low-income youth for summer camp, team sports or recreational activities
  • Coordinate social events and enrichment classes at the senior center
