Help low-income seniors
Help low-income seniors engage in their community

At Phoenix Family we are taking every precaution to keep our senior residents safe and healthy. We have created a Phone Pal Program to keep our isolated seniors connected with the outside world during this time of social distancing

The Phone Pal will call the senior once a week and the schedule will be completely flexible to work with you! You will be checking in with them, seeing how they are doing, and then going through a list of getting to know you questions. We will provide the questions to help you get the conversation started! These chats can just be 15- 20 minutes, so no worries about getting through the long list of questions. You can save them for the next week!

You can simply sign up using this link: https://phoenixfamily.secure.force.com/GW_Volunteers__VolunteersJobListingFS?campaignId=701f3000001Y6SB

Once you sign up we will be in contact to get you paired with your Phone Pal!

You can also email egude@phoenixfamily.org with any questions.

Let's all stay connected during this confusing time!

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.

Description

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.
