The event, designed to benefit Phoenix House’s programs, united motorcycle enthusiasts of all ages and machines of all sizes to journey from Renegade Classics in Deer Park to Gullhaven Golf Club for a carnival with rides, games, food vendors, bike show, and live music. Clients from Phoenix House Brentwood Community Residence attended the carnival, and Julia Floyd-Ventura, vice president, director of mental health and military services programs accepted the donation. We salute Steve’s resolve and generosity in his effort to give back to Phoenix House. As a former client, he strongly promotes recovery and truly cares about educating the community.

The Phoenix House Brentwood Community Residence is a transitional residential facility for adult male clients who have completed substance abuse treatment but are not yet prepared for independent living. Our counselors and staff members provide essential support services and help them resolve outstanding clinical issues and remedy social and vocational obstacles to long-term recovery.
