THE PHOENIX PROJECT
Help at hand for those who need it most. The Phoenix Project offers housing and supportive service opportunities to address the complex needs of those struggling with chronic homelessness and living with HIV/AIDS. The goal of the Phoenix Project is to empower clients to take control of their lives and live them fully without letting their HIV status control them.
