The Senior Cooperative Foundation (SCF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to support development of and best practices for senior housing cooperatives. SCF has created this website to help more people understand the benefits of senior cooperative living.
SCF’s commitment to cooperatives stems from a strong belief in and witness, for over 30 years, to the redemptive power of senior housing cooperatives. It is SCF’s experience that cooperatives are unique in creating affordable, enlivened, independent and interdependent environments that preserve financial resources and enhance the aging process.
The SCF’s own website, www.seniorcoops.org, offers many resources and best practices for those interested in developing or learning more about senior housing cooperatives. The site includes research on the benefits of senior cooperatives and member satisfaction levels, as well as links to many news articles about senior cooperative living.
