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.

Volunteers are vital in helping Phoenix Family reach our mission of helping people and changing lives. Last year, we received support from more than 350 volunteers, but even this is not enough to meet all the needs in our community. Whether you are looking for a seasonal or regular opportunity as an individual or a group, Phoenix Family offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to help our community.

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.

The Phoenix Family non-profit organization is structured well. With consistency, their communication exchange is not only timely, I find it to be positively constructive and progressive. I highly recommend this organization for volunteers wishing to serve a greater cause.

My son and I had a wonderful time helping with a 4th of July party for the seniors. It was refreshing to walk in and see that the event was well organized and our time as volunteers was spent very efficiently. I get frustrated when I volunteer and spend most of my time standing around due to lack of organization. This was NOT the case at this event. Every minute of our time was put to good use. Thank you for the opportunity to share the day with some wonderful people!
