Welcome to The Phoenix Residence

The Phoenix Residence, Inc. is committed to developing person-centered, quality living experiences for individuals with disabilities.

Soaring Beyond Possibilities

The Phoenix Residence, Inc (PRI) is a non-profit organization founded in St. Paul, Minnesota in 1974 by Margaret Ludden, a parent of a son with disabilities. Margaret formed a coalition of parents like her that had grown children with developmental and physical disabilities.

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

"Over my 37 years at The Phoenix Residence, I have experienced so many wonderful times and have enjoyed making a difference in the lives of those we serve. I have made so many great friends with family members and have worked with a great team. I am so grateful to have been able to attend many events and vacations with the folks we serve. I love seeing the faces of individuals having the ability to decorate their own rooms and to call it their own. My life has been enriched in so many ways because of The Phoenix Residence – it is my second family and it has been a wonderful place to work."
