Our Purpose...We provide financial assistance to those in care settings and senior apartments who require care, services or support but have exhausted all other potential funding sources and do not have the financial resources to pay.
May your holidays be filled with joy, laughter, family and friends, and good health.
Please consider making a year-end gift today so that we can continue to brighten the lives of seniors in need...To date, we have served 403 seniors with hearing aids, dentures, dental care, eyeglasses, prescription assistance and through our mobile dental clinics. Your support makes a difference in the lives of the seniors we serve - thank you! Click here to make a donation. Wish to make a special gift in honor or in memory of a loved one? When you provide a contact name and address, we will let them know that a gift has been made in their name (we do not list the specific amount). Ongoing monthly donations are also greatly appreciated.
Success of our Mobile Dental Clinics...
Thanks to the State of Utah, Department of Health, Division of Family Health and Preparedness, Bureau of Primary Care, Office of Primary Care and Rural Health grants we have received, we have been able to change the lives of seniors in Davis, Salt Lake, Utah and Weber Counties for the better. Paying by the hour for services rendered rather than per procedure, SCCF saved a total of $43,411 from February 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016. Seniors participate in their care by paying a flat hourly rate (percentage of the hourly charge) dependent upon their income. We received a total of $16,830.31 in client co-payments.
Through this period, we served 363 new seniors through 840 encounters with our mobile dental clinics. Below is one chart that depicts the demographics of the seniors served.

As you can see from the chart above the most requested services are dental/dentures including the mobile dental clinic, the requested assistance account for 82% of the services we provide. Additionally, through our mobile dental clinics, we are able to stretch our donations much farther than before we started our clinics.
