Our Mission...The mission of the Senior Charity Care Foundation is to improve the quality of life of elders in need.
Our Purpose...The purpose of the Foundation is to provide financial assistance to those in senior 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.

Success of the 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 and Weber Counties for the better. Paying by the hour for services rendered rather than per procedure, SCCF saved a total of $17,345. Seniors participate in their care by paying a flat hourly rate (percentage of the hourly charge) dependent upon their income.
Through the end of September, we served 130 seniors through our mobile dental clinics. Below and to the left are some charts that depict the demographics of the seniors served.
As you can see from the chart above the most requested services are dental in nature - the mobile dental clinic, the referrals to additional dentist and dentures account for 73% of the services we provide.
All of us have had parents and/or a significant adult in our life who helped to shape us into the people we are today. Please consider a donation and pay it forward by donating in honor or in memory of a loved one while supporting the seniors who desperately need your help! Click here to see our spring appeal.
