Beat the Heat Program

Bringing summer relief to low-income, homebound, isolated Seniors.

The City of Scottsdaleā€™s Beat the Heat Program was established to assist Scottsdale residents who are low income, isolated, homebound, or disabled and age 60 years or older. Those individuals who are enrolled in this program are visited by Human Services staff and provided a care package consisting of a re-usable bag, drinks, snacks, toiletries, note pads and pens, a book of stamps, and a $35 grocery gift card. During the visit, City of Scottsdale staff are able to assess the health and well-being of the participant, provide resource materials on many subjects, and make referrals to outside agencies as needed. Approximately 200 individuals participate in this program annually, which operates during the months of April through June.
