Congresswoman Jane Harman at Phoenix House of Los Angeles

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

On June 3, we were honored to have Congresswoman Jane Harman visit Phoenix House of Los Angeles, our substance abuse treatment program on Venice Beach. Ms. Harman listened to the stories of several of our residents and encouraged them to persevere in their quest to change their lives, find jobs and reunite with their families.

On behalf of Phoenix Houses of California’s board of directors, Geoffrey Nathanson presented her with a plaque acknowledging “her tireless efforts on behalf of those in need in our community” – a token of our thanks for all she has done to help support families who are struggling with addiction and its related problems.
