Beat the Heat

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

The City of Scottsdale’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.

“I want to truly thank you from my heart, this is greatly appreciated! I just moved to Arizona from Virginia. I just found a place to live after being homeless form 3 months. This is my first thanksgiving here. I have so much to be thankful for. I thank God for all things, especially for using you to bless me and my family. Have a happy holiday!”

Help us make a difference!

The more funds we raise, the more Scottsdale residents and students we can help!
