National Neighbors Silver

The rapid aging of our population demands a national dialogue on what it takes for today’s seniors and future retirees to live with dignity and economic security. NCRC believes that access to quality banking services and adequate housing options is fundamental to aging in place.

National Neighbors Silver is a multi-year campaign to empower, organize and support economically vulnerable older adults. Combining advocacy, organizing and direct service the campaign promotes access to quality banking services and adequate housing for older adults. Working with the banking industry, the aging network and housing experts, National Neighbors Silver offers a platform for policy and program solutions to build economic security and preserve wealth for aging America.

Advocacy

Working with community-based partners and national allies, NCRC aims to develop a comprehensive policy agenda to build economic security for older adults focused on housing affordability, accessibility and fairness. At the same time, National Neighbors Silver is defining what it means for banks to responsibly serve older consumers.


Organizing

NCRC aims to establish up to 15 local campaigns designed to educate and empower low- and moderate-income older adults. These National Neighbors Silver partners are working to identify pressing financial stressors facing older consumers and to motivate change by decision makers in the public and private sectors.


Direct Service

NCRC serves the needs of economically vulnerable older adults through its Housing Counseling Network and National Training Academy. Older adults and family caregivers who need housing help should call 1-800-475-NCRC to be connected to services. For its membership, NCRC offers a variety of skills and policy based trainings to facilitate organizing, advocacy, outreach and direct service to low- and moderate-income older adults.
