Phoenix Family

Be a superhero - teach a child to read

  • Do you want to make a mark in your community?
  • Do you want to do something new and gain new skills?
  • Do you want to spend just one hour getting to know a student who needs your help?

If you said yes...then you will definitely want to consider becoming a Reading Coach with HIKE this school-year!

HIKE Reading Coaches give students the keys to their success by helping them learn to read! What an awesome way to make a difference.

Phoenix Family serves children, families, and seniors living in low-income housing. Our HIKE Reading Labs take place after-school Monday-Thursday between 4:30 and 6:30 pm. Reading Coaches work one-on-one with students for 45 minute sessions once a week to help improve reading ability for our students grades K-8.

Orientations are being held throughout the year so contact us now to get your training date set up! Email volunteer@phoenixfamily.org with any questions.

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.
