About Us

"The reason I work at The Phoenix Residence is simple . . . it is the people. Day in and day out, I am so privileged to serve four outstanding gentlemen who live at Chaparral House. I first started working at Phoenix every other weekend and two years ago, I became a Program Manager. Our house is filled with laughter and joy – we are truly a family. I know every day when I go to work, I am making a difference in someone’s life."
