Book lovers wanted

Spend just an hour with a student each week and you could really make a difference!

Phoenix Family's HIKE Reading Program invites volunteers to work one-on-one with students grades K-8 who are struggling with reading. These students live in our low-income housing communities and often do not get the attention they need to learn to read.

We prepare the lesson plan and activities, you just come build confidence, encourage, and have fun!

One-hour volunteer shifts are available Monday-Thursday from 4:45 to 6:30 pm. No skills needed, you just need to be 18 years old and complete a background check. We will give you all the training you need.

Contact us at for more information. Or complete our online application here:

You can also sign up for an orientation here:

About Phoenix Family

Mission Statement

Phoenix Family empowers people living in low-income housing communities with the on-site support they need to gain stability and achieve self-sufficiency.


A stable, safe home holds enormous possibilities for a low-income family striving to chart a more secure and hopeful future. With an average household income of just $11,743, Phoenix Family’s residents are often just one crisis away from becoming homeless. And, like millions of low-income individuals across the United States, they need more than housing to build personal and financial assets and overcome barriers to success - they also require services where they live.

Phoenix Family’s Youth Development, Families First and Senior Empowerment Programs provide those critical on-site services that help residents learn skills and gain perspectives that keep dreams of stability and hope realities for the future.

Phoenix Family’s staff and programs rely on trust, rapport, choice and convenience to engage residents in services. All services delivered are culturally appropriate and based on the desired outcomes of residents, including increased disposable income, increased educational levels, improved health, and strengthened social networks.
