Phoenix is a non-profit, community based organization located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. We offer at-risk and homeless youth, ages 12 - 24, the opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness and find a path from the street. Since its inception in 1987, we have developed an extensive variety of programs and services to address the individual needs of each client.
Our primary innovative feature is the continuum of care provided throughout our ten programs and services including: prevention, crisis assistance, emergency shelter, long-term supportive and structured living, independent living, personal skill development, education, health services, and after care services.
Phoenix has become known in our community as the authority regarding issues of youth homelessness: poverty, housing, discrimination, literacy and the many other social issues that are embedded within the challenge of addressing the needs of the youth we serve.
