Our staff are compassionate, enthusiastic professionals who love what they do!

In celebration of our 30th year, Phoenix presents PhoenixFolks. From July-September, 2017 we will share stories from some of Phoenix’s amazing staff team – their interests, what motivates them and how came to work at Phoenix. Each Friday a new chapter (or two) will be released. Our people make great things possible for youth, families and communities!
