ABOUT It's Time Texas

Born out of ACTIVE Life in 2014, It’s Time Texas (ITT) is an Austin-based nonprofit championing the movement for a healthier TX by making healthier lifestyles more accessible for all Texans. Our programs and partnerships empower Texans to lead healthier lives, build healthier communities, and contribute to a healthier state.

We were established with funding from public and private partnerships (Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas, H-E-B, RGK Foundation, and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Education Program) nearly all of whom continue to support the organization today.

It’s Time Texas is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit empowering Texans to lead healthier lives, build healthier communities, and contribute to a healthier state. Every day, we work alongside Texans committed to improving health within their homes, schools, workplaces, and communities. Our goal is a Texas where everyone – no matter where they live, their age, race, or income – has the resources, support, and opportunities to prioritize health and live their best life. Through programs and partnerships built to advance health on multiple fronts, we are shifting behaviors, practices, and policies to make health core to what it means to be a Texan. Together, we are igniting the movement for a healthier Texas. Join us at

At It's Time Texas, we work hard and we help each other. We offer a stimulating work environment where talented people, who are committed to transforming health in Texas, thrive. We're going all-in on building a culture of health in Texas.
