Senior Services Programs

Some seniors in Scottsdale need support. In order to assist our neighbors in need, Scottsdale has created two seasonal programs focused on assisting income eligible, isolated seniors. 

Adopt a Senior is our Holiday program, running October - December. 

Beat the Heat is a Summer program where necessary summer supplies are delivered to home-bound seniors.

We rely on donations to keep these programs going! If you aren't able to adopt a senior, a monetary donation will go to programs supporting seniors in Scottsdale.
