It is never too early in a child’s life to instill the importance of supporting their community and helping others. At the Cathedral Church of All Saints in Halifax, they have been putting this belief into action in a beautiful way.
Every season at Phoenix is alive with activities, opportunities, challenges, and achievements. In this report, you will read about how Phoenix staff and volunteers work hard to create special moments.

Reflection by Staff Member Mark McIntosh, Community Engagement Coordinator
The winter holidays are truly the most wonderful time of the year. They are filled with excitement, spending time with family and friends, and most importantly, a time to share love, compassion, and kindness. This past December, was my very first holiday season with Phoenix and I experienced, first-hand the kindness and generosity of our community coming together to make the holidays a little bit brighter for our youth and their families.
