Holiday spirit abounds throughout New England as friends of Phoenix House – members of the board, administration, and staff at facilities everywhere – come together to ensure that holiday dreams come true for the children in our care. Each holiday season, generous individuals throughout the community adopt families at Phoenix House Residential Services for Women, our program for substance-dependent women and their children, or at Phoenix Families, our emergency housing program for mothers with small children. In the words of Doris Brown, Program Director at both facilities, “For many children in our care, this is really their first holiday in a safe, stable environment. It just warms your heart.”
It’s not too late to help ensure that every child in our care has a happy holiday this year. You can warm your own heart by making a commitment of $150 to this effort. Adopters may donate by credit card by contacting Phoenix House New England at 401 331 4250, Extension 3210, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also forward a check for $150 to Phoenix House at 99 Wayland Avenue, Suite 100, Providence, RI, 02906. We will do the holiday shopping for your adopted family, and you will receive a personal note of thanks for your generosity at this most wonderful time of year. So go ahead: catch the spirit! It will warm a family’s hearts – and your own!
