The Friendly House Scholars Program awards scholarships to incoming freshmen attending one of the ten Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) schools. The 2012 Friendly House Scholars were acknowledged and honored at a special event at the Hyatt Regency
In 1935, in direct response to economic hardships faced by the organization during its early years, community members decided to help raise money by making and selling tamales. Since its inception, the Tamale Dinner has become a cultural tradition attracting hundreds from across the Valley of the Sun. Proceeds support Friendly House’s transformational mission of promoting success and independence to those we serve.
