Soaring Beyond Possibilities

Celebrating 40 Years

To honor our 40th Anniversary, we’ll be sharing stories of people who have made an impact at The Phoenix Residence. Read about these inspirational stories on the right.

Phoenix is Home

Individuals are self directed in all activities of daily living. Supports are individualized and tailored to the specific needs of each person within their home and community. Today, The Phoenix Residence supports individuals with disabilities in a variety of living arrangements in the Twin Cities. Most of our residential homes are located in the east metro area, in Ramsey, Washington and Dakota counties. The Phoenix Residence and its sister corporation, Phoenix Service Corporation, are united in supporting individuals in residential and nonresidential settings helping individuals with disabilities to soar beyond possibilities.

About Us

"From the first meeting before admittance, staff has always been available for questions, etc. covering all aspects of care. Move-in day we were met with help and assistance. All are interested in whatever is going on. We have attended many events and meetings, large and small, put on my The Phoenix organization and the home our daughter, Wendy, abides in. Our experience has always been one of caring staff, not only for our daughter, but also the other residents. Upon visits with us, Wendy is always happy to return home to her family at Eric’s House. Recently at Wendy’s home, Eric’s House, a 60th birthday party put on by our family. Over 50 people participated. That included approximately nine group homes, staff, and one or two residents from each. Then, of course, many family members, staff, and others from Eric’s House [were there]. Our family was impressed by the care and concern shown [to] the residents by staff. Wendy was overjoyed by this celebration. We, as a family, are once again looking forward to the Made in the Shade walk. Most have participated in the past. How happy we are that the opportunity for Wendy to move into Eric’s House came about. It gives us great comfort to know she is cared for."
