Scottsdale residents have mastered the art of settling the score. The lifestyle that this gem of a city affords its residents is never lacking. From its abundant sunshine and crystal-clear blue skies, to its stunning desert views in every direction. And truly, what many believe to be the crown jewel of Scottsdale – the resplendent and revered McDowell Sonoran Preserve. This living treasure encompasses over 30,000 acres, making it the largest urban preserve in the nation. The beautiful McDowell Mountains are at the heart of the preserve, where over 170 miles of trails wind through lush, cacti-dotted terrain and where an eclectic mix of desert-dwelling animals make their home.

The scenic home sites are large, with sizes ranging from 4.37 acres to 7.87 acres, and each lot has a pre-approved hillside building envelope. The Continental Mountain Estates community has CC&Rs and design guidelines in place to ensure quality architecture and construction consistent with the neighborhood. Further, each home site has been improved with paved streets, water and electricity; and the Public Report has been issued. There is a Home Owners Association in place to manage and enforce quality standards. The streets within the community have been dedicated to the Town of Cave Creek, which is charged with the responsibility of maintaining the streets and the street landscaping. Cave Creek does not allow guard gates for any of its subdivisions; therefore the HOA fees will not need to include the expense and upkeep of a gate system. As is typical with home sites of this large size, many homeowners prefer to install a private gate to the entrance of their individual property, rather than relying on a gate for the community at large. Priced from $500,000 to nearly $1,000,000, many of the 13 sites are still available for sale. ContinentalMountainEstates.com

WHAT THEY DO:

“Family Promise rescues FamilyPromiseAZ.org primarily first-time homeless families from the streets and provides emergency shelter and basic needs in a sixty-day program designed to assist their return to self-sufficiency. Our shelter includes a sanctuary for the family pet, the first such program in Arizona. Our goal is to give the family a handsup and assist them in their return to self-sufficiency. Services include case management, counseling, enrichment programs, resources and referrals with the focus on securing employment and next-step housing. Our program model is based on a national model that is highly successful, and over 70% of families accepted into the Family Promise program graduate into sustainable housing. Family Promise partners with over 30 interfaith congregations across the Valley to provide safe overnight shelter, food and compassion to families in crisis.

LOT 13 4.73 AC

Every new year brings with it the promise of clarity, an overwhelming sense that your best self is attainable and that you have the motivation to make it happen. But where to begin? You can resolve to improve your health or prioritize your career—lofty goals, indeed—but you'd be surprised what a little housekeeping can do for your soul. Start by identifying all the projects you've been putting off for a rainy day and mastering them one at a time until they've all been checked off your list. Need to organize that closet? Carpe diem, my friend. Been meaning to refresh your living room for eons? Today is as good as any. You'll be impressed by how much lighter you feel—both physically and mentally—once your home becomes as uncluttered as your mind.

Our objective is to rescue families quickly before the devastating effects of homelessness create a downward spiral of poverty, reliance on shelters, accompanied by developmental, academic and health problems, and ultimately foster care for the children.”

Reinvent your closet. Getting your wardrobe—and where you keep it—in order can not only help you maximize your space but also streamline your morning routine, making your day more efficient before it even begins.

Petsmart has made it possible for homeless families to receive shelter without having to part from the family pet. Family Promise was the first homeless shelter in Arizona to provide an onsite pet sanctuary, allowing children growing through the crisis of homelessness to keep their furry friend, an important point of stability for kids whose life is in turmoil.

Get to work. Whether you work from home or bring your work home with you, a designated space that inspires creativity and productivity gets the job done.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Engage in some color therapy. The force for reinvention, whether it's an update in a living room or a refresh in a bedroom, is strong during the long winter months. If a full makeover isn't in the budget, go bold by adding accessories in bright hues or textiles in unexpected patterns.
