Operation Fix It



Operation Fix It provides assistance to Scottsdale home owners with exterior improvements to their properties when they are unable due to financial / physical constraints. Many of our clients are our elderly facing potential fines from Code Enforcement notices they have received. Common types of assistance we provide to low income qualifying applicants are:

  • Landscape maintenance and clean-up
  • Enhancement of pre-existing landscape
  • Removal of high water usage or dead grass and installation of new, low water usage landscape.
  • Paint house
  • Handyman repairs
  • Build new fences

This program is not funded by the City and operates on donations both financial and in kind and, the support of our incredible volunteers who contribute their precious time, sweat and dedication to our mission which is: Driven by a need that promotes meaningful sustainability for our residents, Operation Fix It provides an innovative approach to replenish and renew those residential properties that may have fallen on challenging times. As “neighbors helping neighbors”, our like-minded sponsors and supportive volunteers work together to provide this meaningful community service.
