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

We Need YOUR Help to Keep Our Services Strong  

Due to severe staffing shortages and ongoing changes to Medicaid funding for Direct Support Professionals it’s become critically important to seek other sources of funding to supplement a competitive salary and benefits package for these invaluable members of our care team.

Your gift to help CLOSE THE GAP is smart and will make a real difference in helping us attract and retain quality skilled and caring Direct Support Professionals. You are essential to the ongoing success of The Phoenix Residence in providing quality care and life experiences to our individuals. We need YOUR help. Please consider making a gift today.

Direct Support Professionals are at the heart of carrying out our mission each and every day.

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

"He had a great relationship with Don Bond when they lived together at the big main house. Mike always joked with Don, and when Don talked to much, Mike would say “gooba, gooba, goo shoot you to the moon." When Mike moved to Suburban House from the big main house, he became really good buds with Brian, one of the staff. Mike and Brian make sure to go out on an outing together at least once a month."
