Our Mission

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 June 30, 2015 the community impact has reached approximately $183 Million.  These are a few ways the Foundation is impacting communities nationally in a powerful way.

•      5,160 affordable rental housing units
•      541 home mortgages for low- and moderate-income families
•      $240,000 in affordable healthcare services
•      $460,000 in economic development
•      $16.5 million in statewide homeownership programs and down payment assistance
•      $3.4 million in job creation and small business development
•      325 home mortgages for low- and moderate-income families
•      $25.3 million to states and municipalities for services to low- and moderate-income persons

Transforming Lives

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.
