Social/Community Outreach

We serve our communities by offering a needed service, but we also strive to be a part of our communities. To NSA, this means caring about the wellbeing of our customers and employees as well as the communities in which we operate. Promoting diversity is also a key part of how we operate our business.

Newsweek Best Customer Service Award

Our brand SecurCare was recognized by Newsweek Media as one of America’s Best Customer Service Companies for 2022. The distinction was based on an independent survey of more than 25,000 U.S. customers conducted by global research firm Statista, which ranked retailers and service providers in 161 categories overall. The complete list distinguishes SecurCare as the #1 customer service provider in the Storage Centers category.

Charity Involvement

We seek to give back to the communities in which we operate and help those in need of assistance. We regularly donate the use of storage units to various charitable organizations, participate in community fundraising activities and donate our time to important causes. We partnered with Feeding America in 2021 by donating the equivalent of over 750K meals to assist in ending food insecurity in America. Feeding America is a nationwide network of food banks that feeds more than 40 million people through food pantries and meal programs in communities across America and leads the nation in the fight against hunger.


Storage Units Donated to Charity

We regularly donate storage units for charitable use. In 2021, we donated storage units to a number of charities, including the following: American Red Cross, Bikes for Tykes, St. Louis Blues Blind Hockey Club, Mission in Citrus, Vietnam Veterans Association and Boy Scouts of America.

Junior Achievement Volunteer Work

Members of NSA’s senior management team volunteered their time in 2019 to Junior Achievement-Rocky Mountain, Inc. (JA), which is dedicated to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy. Through a dedicated volunteer network, JA  provides programs for students which focus on three key content areas: entrepreneurship, financial literacy and work readiness. 

Adopt a Family

A tradition here at NSA, every holiday season we participate in an adopt a family program. In 2019, we participated in the adopt a family program through Denver Human Services (DHS). DHS case workers nominate families with open child protection cases, foster families, recently closed adoptions and kinship families. This past year we sponsored a family of six, fulfilling the family’s wish list, while also matching donations made by our employees.

NSA is committed to treating its team members as family. Our team members enjoy a robust benefit package that includes medical, dental, vision, life insurance, 401K with matching employer contribution and a performance-based bonus incentive plan. Our team members also enjoy employee discount programs, a Wellness Reimbursement benefit and an Employee Assistance Program.
