“Triumph Bank is proud to partner with CRA Partners and Senior Crimestoppers because of their dedication to the safety and security for senior citizens in our Memphis community. Elder Abuse is a major problem in America today, and providing lockboxes to every resident in the two locations we have adopted is the first step in providing this to them. We look forward to growing our relationship with these residents in the future,” stated William Chase, Jr., President and CEO of Triumph Bank.

Thanks to Triumph Bank, residents of Union Avenue Baptist Towers and Garden Apartments in Memphis, Tennessee will live in a safer and even more secure living environment. Triumph Bank recently joined CRA Partners and is helping vulnerable seniors by funding the Senior Crimestoppers program to protect those who live and work in this local 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 94%.

“Senior Crimestoppers is a way for an administrator to further enhance the lives of the 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,” said Terry Rooker, president of Senior Crimestoppers.

About Triumph Bank
Triumph Bank started in 2006 when a group of respected local bankers and business leaders wanted to bring hometown banking back to the Memphis area. The foundation of success to date is more than convenience or friendly service, but to make every decision for the customer here and nowhere else. With our roots firmly planted in the community, everyone can grow together. By remaining completely local, we have the power to be more flexible – whether it’s a loan decision, a commitment to an organization like the Dixon or just making ourselves available to you. It gives you more control and confidence that when we say you matter, you really matter.
