Covering the Bases: Back to School 2017
Scottsdale Community Partners works with Vista del Camino Community Center to host the annual Back to School Drive happening this year on Wednesday, July 26th.
Scottsdale Community Partners was incorporated in 1975 under the name Concerned Citizens for Community Health, as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization supporting un-met needs in Scottsdale in partnership with the Human Services Division of the City of Scottsdale. For over 40-years, we have been working closely with the City of Scottsdale to develop, support, and expand human services programs for Scottsdale youth, families, and seniors. Through a formal agreement, this partnership allows both organizations to better address and prevent homelessness meet the basic needs of individuals, families and seniors in crisis. Our mutual goal is to help Scottsdale residents maintain self-sufficiency when emergencies or hardships occur.
Residents in need are seen at one of the City of Scottsdale Human Services locations, which include Vista del Camino Community Center, Granite Reef or Via Linda Senior Centers, and Adaptive Services Center. Social workers and staff work to assess and identify where assistance is needed and determine which programs and entities will best support the individual or family. Wherever Scottsdale Community Partners can assist, we do.
Our monetary and in-kind fundraising is critically important to the work of the City of Scottsdale Human Services Division. We fully fund programs such as Healthy Packs, Vista del Camino Ballet Folklorico, the Gleaners Food Program, Transportation Assistance Program, Emergency Youth Program, and the P.E.T. Pantry. We also sponsor major programs such as, the annual Covering The Bases: Back to School Event, Adopt A Family, Adopt A Senior, and Beat the Heat Programs.
