July 19, 2018
Scottsdale City Council recently approved nearly $2 million to fund nonprofit agencies that provide programs and services to assist Scottsdale residents in need. The funds come from three sources – Scottsdale Cares, the city’s voluntary utility bill donation program; General Fund monies; and Salt River-Pima Maricopa Indian Community grant funding. Funding helps nonprofits like Teen Lifeline, an organization with a mission to end teen suicide. Other organizations that will receive funding include Cortney’s Place, a day center for adults with disabilities; Family Promise Greater Phoenix, which provides services for homeless families; Catholic Charities Community Services, Inc.; Duet: Partners in Health and Aging, which provides transportation for elderly and disabled residents; Jewish Family & Children’s Services; Chrysalis Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence; and Tempe Community Action Agency, which provides meals for seniors both home-bound and at Granite Reef Senior Center in Scottsdale.
