Empowering Adults Living with Disabilities to Soar Beyond Possibility

The Phoenix Residence provides essential services to adults living with disabilities that enable them to thrive in their own homes. With the help of our 230 skilled and caring Direct Support Professionals, we serve 300 adults in Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, and Washington counties.

We are hopeful that YOU will be inspired to join us in this effort by either clicking "Donate" to make a tax-deductible donation or by clicking "Start Fundraising" as an individual to build your own page and garner donations from your friends and family! This is your opportunity to tell them about what The Phoenix Residence means to you!

Our mission: to empower those we serve to Soar Beyond Possibility!

We are facing two serious challenges to the services we provide:

1) Ongoing changes to the Medicaid funding system that supports the wages we can pay

2) A serious workforce shortage which threatens staffing levels and our ability to keep and attract a skilled, caring, and talented workforce

These factors are threatening our ability to attract, train, and retain skilled and caring Direct Support Professionalsthose who are at the heart of carrying out our mission to provide a caring, person-centered environment for those we serve.


We Need YOUR Help!

For about the cost of a daily cup of coffee, your modest gift can help The Phoenix Residence invest in our Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) by providing them a competitive wage and benefits. They work hard each day to provide person-centered care for someone's parent, sibling, or child.

A gift of $13 is equal to one (1) hour of Direct Support Professional services

A gift of $26 is equal to two (2) hours of Direct Support Professional services

A gift of $39 is equal to three (3) hours of Direct Support Professional services

A gift of $104 is equal to eight (8) hours of Direct Support Professional services

Or, choose the amount that feels right for you.

Click "Donate" to make a tax-deductible donation. Or, click "Start Fundraising" as an individual to help us reach our goal of raising $150,000.
