We do many things in our community.Our main mission is to collect and distribute new and gently used household items to area families and individuals in need from a variety of reasons. Our clients range from the elderly on a limited fixed income who may just need a new frying pan ,domestic abuse victims, people recovering from homelessness etc. We do not charge for these items.Once people acquire housing that is where we step in and provide the essentials needed to have a conducive environment. We give away things ranging from simple silverware, bedding, bathroom and kitchen items,baby items, small appliances, up to furniture and larger appliances when available.Our clients are usually referred to us by other agencies.We work with over 40 agencies and Churches. We are very active in our community , last year were able to distribute 300 Easter baskets to area children in need, we threw an amazing Halloween Party and provided 75 Costumes.

Volunteering at Project Phoenix is very rewarding, everyone is friendly and helpful. I enjoy being part of the Project Phoenix team and giving back to my Englewood Community. As a resale shop there is a lot to do; sorting and pricing donations, helping customers, stocking shelves. Then there are the special events where we can all chip ing. Everyone seems to manage to work hard and have fun at the same time. It really feels like you're part of a family here.
