Houston Programs Receive Community Stars Award

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Hats off to our Phoenix House Houston programs, a 2009 recipient of the Community Stars award! This distinction is granted to Houston and Harris county organizations that are making great strides to reduce crime and drug use in the area.

“This is a unique opportunity for those of us in public office to pay tribute to the many citizens and businesses who work hard to protect their neighborhoods, companies, and themselves against the devastation of drugs,” said Mayor White of Houston.

Sponsors for this event and award include Houston Crackdown, the anti-drug division of the Mayor’s Office of Public Safety and Homeland Security, the Houston Office of Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and Clear Channel Communications.

A special luncheon was held to recognize Phoenix House achievements in Houston toward drug and crime prevention. In addition to the luncheon, Phoenix House Houston received a crystal star award, acknowledgment from the City of Houston, and a grand prize of billboard displays along major freeways throughout Houston and Harris counties to showcase our accomplishment.

We are very proud of our Houston programs director, Marcia Baker, and her team, who have worked diligently to attain this exciting honor!
