In recent years, as a nation, we have become more aware of the problem of homelessness. We are spending more money and providing more shelter beds than ever to solve the problem. Yet, despite our best efforts, the number of homeless people and families continues to rise. We believe providing shelter is just the beginning of the answer. When help is focused only on those who are homeless right now, little can be done to prevent the homeless of tomorrow.
Phoenix Family offers programs to more than 5,600 residents living in 32 communities in 13 cities throughout Missouri and Kansas. Through our Youth Development, Families First and Senior Empowerment programs, we provide an integrated, broad range of services tailored to the individual resident. Activities are designed to enable residents to stay in their homes and with their families while they make progress towards and attain self-sufficiency. Combined, our activities empower residents to access the essential resources they need to improve their lives and break the cycle of poverty.
