Our mission is to provide safe and secure living environments for our nation's low-and-moderate income elderly population through the provision and administration of the nationally-acclaimed Senior Crimestoppers program. Funded exclusively by the banking industry, the Foundation enables banks a way to earn CRA credit through the sponsorship of this program in senior housing facilities, HUD communities, and Veterans homes in the form of community development loans, CRA-qualified investments, and grants.

Positive Community Impact
Crime and abuse against the elderly are constant battles, and the Foundation’s mission of administering the Senior Crimestoppers program to provide safe and secure living environments for all of our nation’s senior housing residents has never been more vital. It cannot be overstated that there is a positive community impact for the low-and-moderate income senior housing residents who receive a better quality of life when they have safety, security and peace of mind.
Not only does the Foundation impact the lives of senior housing residents, we also impact the community outside of the long-term care industry through the CRA-qualified securities we purchase on behalf of our bank partners. As March 31, 2015 the community impact has reached approximately $134 Million. These are a few ways the Foundation is impacting communities nationally in a powerful way.
• 2,886 Affordable Rental Housing Units
• 433 Home Mortgages for Low-to-Moderate-Income Families
• $240,000 in Affordable Healthcare Services
• $100,000 in Economic Development
• $15 Million in Statewide Homeownership Programs and Down Payment Assistance
• $2.7 Million in Job Creation and Small Business Development
• $25.3 Million to States and Municipalities for services to Low-to-Moderate-Income Families

Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation
Each year hundreds of thousands of seniors are exploited because studies show that as a person ages they lose their healthy sense of skepticism. It doesn’t mean that they’re any less intelligent or capable; it just means they are more trusting, less discerning and more forgiving. They trust others to meet their most basic needs. When that trust is broken, it throws millions of seniors into isolation and despair. Elder financial exploitation is currently at epic proportions and the financial services industry has a responsibility to help those in our community against such horrific acts. More
Craig Montanaro, President & CEO of Kearny Bank said, “We are a company committed to supporting the communities where our customers live, we are proud of this partnership and the positive influence it brings to the Alaris Health residents.” Senior Crimestoppers President Terry Rooker said, “Our program is a way for an administrator to further enhance the lives of the elderly residents they serve. They all work very hard to provide safe, secure, comfortable living environments and their desire to implement the program is just one more example of this. Implementing this program does not mean that the facility currently has a crime problem, but that the administrator is proactively finding a way to keep problems from occurring in the future.” More

Citizens Bank is committed to partnering with local business and organizations to help make the lives of those who live in our communities better.” More

How CRA Credit is Granted
With the support of our partners, the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation transforms the lives of vulnerable nursing home residents. It is hard to overstate the transformative effect a bank can have on the life of an elderly person by removing fear from their lives — fear of neglect, fear of theft, fear of needing equipment and not knowing where to turn.
