Scottsdale funds Tempe nonprofit for local work

Posted

The Tempe Community Action Agency will receive $146,000 this year from Scottsdale as part of the city’s contribution to nonprofit agencies that provide programs and services to assist thousands of people who are at risk and in need.

 The Scottsdale City Council last month approved more than $1.9 million for such nonprofits.

TCAA’s goal is to improve the quality of life in the community by “helping alleviate crisis and transition to greater economic independence,” according to the organization’s website.

“For more than 55 years, we have capably addressed the causes and effects of poverty in Tempe and surrounding communities. We support people and families to overcome adversity and live their best lives.”

In Scottsdale, for example, TCAA offers congregate lunches at the Granite Reef Senior Center.

 Other groups funded from Scottsdale’s general fund are: A New Leaf ($28,000), Area Agency on Aging ($13,560), Duet: Partners in Aging and Health ($8,440) and Fresh Start Women’s Center ($2,522).
