Phoenix Houses of the Mid-Atlantic is happy to announce that this month we were awarded a grant of $5,000 by The Dominion Guild, Inc., to support our mission of helping adults and adolescents from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan community recover from substance-related problems, and return to healthy and productive lives.
Janice McKelvey, the 2012 Projects Committee Chair and Vicki Kirkbride, a member of the 2012 Projects Committee and the incoming President of The Dominion Guild, Inc. delivered the check personally to Debby Taylor, Senior VP and Regional Director at Phoenix Houses of the Mid-Atlantic.
Established in 1986, the Dominion Guild, Inc. is a women’s organization which has been raising funds for over 20 years for distribution to qualifying projects and entities serving the Northern Virginia community. The primary vehicle for raising these funds is its annual Open House, Boutiques and Coffee.
Phoenix Houses of the Mid-Atlantic is a non-profit organization that provides residential, transitional and outpatient treatment with gender-specific programs available for both adults and adolescents from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan community. Every day, Phoenix Houses of the Mid-Atlantic helps hundreds of people who are suffering from addiction in 17 programs in Virginia, Maryland and DC. We are proud to say that the organization, which was begun in Arlington County in 1962, just celebrated its 50th Anniversary of service to the local community.
Phoenix Houses of the Mid-Atlantic strives to meet the substance abuse treatment needs of those who otherwise might not be served: the indigent, the uninsured and special populations such as adolescents and mothers with children. Grants like this are essential for us to accomplish this mission.
We are very grateful for this grant and we thank all the Dominion Guild, Inc. committee members for their continued support over the past years.
