Phoenix Family Housing empowers people living in low-income housing communities with the on-site support they need to gain stability and achieve self-sufficiency.
One of Phoenix Family's key priorities for the Youth Development Program is to help youth in our communities gain the skills necessary to break the cycle of poverty. We know that with an education, good health and job skills every child can accomplish their dreams. Helping youth in Phoenix Family-supported communities gain these skills requires a set of activities geared specifically toward the challenges they face every day.
Phoenix Family provides services to more than 3,000 families every day. With 200 local partnerships, we help famiies find lasting solutions to complex problems. Our programs combine short-term assistance to meet immediate critical needs with long-term services that address the root causes of poverty.
