About Steuben Senior Services Fund, Inc. (SSSF)


The Steuben Senior Services Fund (SSSF) is a public, not-for-profit senior citizen charitable fund established in the year 2000 to supplement future public funding for aging in place services for the elderly in Steuben County.


The charitable fund goal is $6.5 million.


SSSF was established at the recommendation of the Steuben County Office for the Aging volunteer Advisory Council after extensive research regarding the needs of future elderly residents of the county. Offices for the Aging are public or private non-profit agencies identified by the State to address the needs and concerns of older persons. Providing services to this population has always been a challenge in this large, primarily rural county, but will become even more challenging with the influx of aging baby boomers.


The Advisory Council recognized the certainty that public funds would not be sufficient to keep pace with the demand for in-home services to the elderly population (indeed, they are insufficient at the present time). The Council confirmed its commitment to the charitable fund concept with an initial contribution for start-up expenses. A broad and growing donor base has supported operating expenses to date, and the protected charitable fund continues to grow. (Visit Guidestar for 2018 990)


SSSF is governed by a 14-member volunteer Board of Directors and employs a small part-time staff. The Fund is recognized by the IRS as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, and donations to the Fund are fully tax-deductible.
