A Time for Giving to Phoenix House California

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Decorations and gifts at Phoenix Houses of CaliforniaHolidays are the perfect opportunity for many of us to find joy and happiness in spending time with our family and loved ones.  As we rekindle and reinforce our bonds, we are reminded of the love and support that allows us to make it through life’s challenges.  Unfortunately, for 23 million Americans struggling with addiction and dependency ailments, the holidays can be a difficult time.

At Phoenix House, family and personal relationships are at the core of our recovery practices. We help teens, women, and men in our care rebuild their most treasured relationships, while standing with them as friends and partners so they are never alone on the journey to recovery.

To ensure that we provide the highest quality of care to the families who need us most, we rely on the generosity of friends like you. With your support, we continue to help those recovering from substance abuse to heal their broken bonds and learn to make life choices based on love, respect, and patience — the same values we celebrate at this time of year and the same values that keep families together, generation after generation.

We hope you will consider the work of Phoenix House California and make us a part of your charitable giving this holiday season.  Please help us to make a difference in the life of others.
