Kristin Sabo, a Phoenix House of California grant writer maintains a lush, five-acre garden within Griffith Park in Los Angeles.
Phoenix House Academy’s therapeutic activities include organic gardening and raising chicken. Some years ago, a client, Ryan, built the garden’s beds with financial support from his family. The garden keeps growing, tended by teens in treatment.
Billy Gillispie, recently hired head coach for the Texas Tech men’s basketball program, mentioned his support of Phoenix House in a radio interview with Dallas’ sports talk station 1310 The Ticket.
