In their own words

Banking leaders discuss the value of working with CRA Partners and Senior Crimestoppers.

CRA Partners has been wonderful to work with.  They provide a turnkey method of getting positive CRA qualifying credit and have always been very responsive to all of our needs.  I highly recommend CRA Partners for any institution looking for CRA lending or investment credit to strengthen their CRA rating.  

Donald Federoff

SVP Chief Compliance & BSA Officer, National Cooperative Bank, Hillsboro, OH

We are thrilled about our partnership and providing crime preventive services to set standards for the protection of our seniors living in these facilities. The loan we made is so much more than dollars. It’s the peace of mind that comes with helping our citizens live in a safer environment. We are honored to be a part of this effort.

Mark Sparks

CEO, West Texas State Bank, Odessa, TX

We have been in partnership with CRA Partners since 2002. Aside from the credit we receive for CRA, it has been a great investment in the communities we serve and has resulted in reduced crime for the residents of the homes in which we invest. We are proud of our affiliation with the program and look forward to our continued partnership.

Mott Ford

Vice Chairman and CEO, Commercial Bank and Trust Company, Memphis, TN

Lake City Bank is pleased to provide safety and security for our senior citizens in our local nursing homes as a continuation of our long tradition of giving back to our local communities. We are committed to preventing fraud and abuse, and the Senior Crimestoppers program has proven to be a strong deterrent to crime. We don’t think we realized just how important our support was until we spoke with the residents and saw first-hand how much this program means to them. They appreciated the fact that we got involved and are doing all we can to make sure they are safe and have peace of mind.

Bruce Wright

SVP, Retail Banking Regional Manager of Lake City Bank, Warsaw, IN

As a community bank, we make various investments into our community. I believe there is no better investment than the opportunity to provide a safe and secure environment for the very ones that made our community what it is today; and, we take great pride in our partnership to protect seniors to this end.

First Tennessee Bank is pleased to partner with CRA Partners to provide the Senior Crimestoppers program so our vulnerable seniors may continue to have a safe and secure environment. This incredible program is a true asset to the residents. It will give them the added peace of mind they deserve, and it will help to protect them from crime, which improves the quality of life in their nursing home community and ours. It’s just the right thing to do!

Keith Turbett

SVP, Community Development Manger- West Tennessee region, First Tennessee Bank, Memphis, TN

CRA Partners’ mission is to provide protection for vulnerable senior housing residents by offering banks a meaningful turnkey CRA qualified program. The Senior Crimestoppers program gives the residents an enhanced quality of life and gives the bank CRA credit in return. When you look at the seniors you are helping, it is hard to overstate the positive effect a bank can have on the life of a senior citizen by removing the fear of theft and neglect from their lives while also earning CRA credit for your bank. It’s a win-win for everyone.
