“Springs Valley Bank & Trust Company provided The Timbers of Jasper & Springs Valley Meadows with their annual Wish Comes True Grant.”
August 20, 2019
In 2017, Springs Valley joined CRA Partners to help vulnerable seniors by funding the Senior Crimestoppers program to protect those who live and work in this local senior care facility.
CRA Partners, powered by the Senior Housing Crime Prevention Foundation, is a national organization that guarantees banks federally mandated CRA credit through the operation of the turn-key Senior Crimestoppers program providing safe and secure living environments for our nation’s low to moderate income seniors. Through flexible funding options such as CRA-qualified community development loans, investments or grants, banks provide the program in senior housing facilities, HUD communities and state Veterans homes while garnering positive public relations exposure in their communities.
Crime against the elderly in our society is a longstanding, constant battle that can be reduced and prevented through the operation of the Senior Crimestoppers program in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Senior Crimestoppers is a coordinated set of components that work together to create a zero tolerance to crime platform in senior housing facilities. Components include cash rewards up to $1,000 paid anonymously for information about wrongdoing of any kind, personal lockboxes for the residents, and effective, on-going education and training for staff members and residents. Senior Crimestoppers has reduced all aspects of crime in participating facilities by 95%.
A component of the Senior Crimestoppers program is the annual Wish Comes True grant. The Timbers of Jasper Wish Comes True grant will be utilized to purchase supplies for activities and the Springs Valley Meadows Wish Comes True funds will be used to purchase bird feeders, bird feed, and flowers for the facility.
