Celebrating 50 years of Residential Services

This year we celebrate 50 years of life-changing work, marking this milestone offered us the opportunity to reflect on the impact that Phoenix has had on thousands of people’s lives.

We know from our founder’s Griffith Edwards publications that date as far back as 1968, the positive impact that Phoenix has been making to the lives of “otherwise lost and deprived young men,” and women over the past five decades.
