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

"CBS began its relationship with Phoenix in 1997, when [former] board member Russ Douglas invited CBS to renovate its original flagship facility on Colorado Street in St. Paul, prior to the current concept of integrating individual group homes in residential neighborhoods. I had worked for Russ years earlier when he was a board member for the Salvation Army. CBS became a yearly donor (now 20 years running) that same year in 1997. We have done a lot of work for nonprofit and faith-based organizations, but have chosen to actively support Phoenix year after year, because I continue to stand in awe of the compassion and dedication of the Phoenix staff in serving people with the greatest of need in our community. Phoenix gives families hope in their time of trial. Thanks to Russ, Judy, Darlene, Mary, and all the dedicated Phoenix staff and volunteers for being the heart of our community! It has been CBS' pleasure to partner with you all these years!"
