"My name is Ashley and I have been volunteering at the Centerville House since 2011. It has been a great experience! Their smiles, laughs, and hugs fill me with much joy. Whether I am playing games, helping with arts and crafts, planting flowers, or cooking meals – I enjoy every second I spend with them!"


Centerville House


As you know our funding resources are dwindling and we are stretching every dollar as far as we can! Fundraising for specific equipment and other needs to help individuals gain more independence, participate in an activity of choice, such as camp, vacations or going to see a show are not funded activities so we must fundraise to continue to provide these vital life enriching activities.

You Can Help

The Phoenix Residence, Inc. asks for your support to meet its annual goal of raising $100,000 to enrich the lives of those we serve.

Your life enrichment contribution will:

  • Obtain adaptive equipment to enhance independence
  • Help individuals participate in educational and volunteer community activities
  • Enhance their living environment
  • Help individuals to explore a variety of social and recreational events

You can help make these dreams a reality with your contribution to The Phoenix Residence, Inc. Life Enrichment Fund.
