I am in intern at Phoenix Gate and I have enjoyed watching the clients interact and learn from each other. I fill the the counselor really respects the clients and they can see that she is there for them. I have had nothing but good experiences while I have been interning here at the Phoenix Gate. With the counselor that they have I feel that there will be many people that will benifit from the classes.

I became involved with this amazing organization as a Volunteer in August 2010. From the moment I first walked into Phoenix Gate, Inc. I knew it was a special place that improves people's lives. I never dreamed I would be given the opportunity to not only help others make a fresh start, realize they can achieve their goals, and hope for the future but also experience this for myself. In October 2010, I was hired as a full-time employee at Phoenix Gate, Inc. and embarked on a new journey. It's exciting to experience everyone that comes in contact with this organization learn and grow together. The counselor's provide knowledge and support in a non-judgemental manner.

The Great!

I have been privilaged to be a part of Phoenix Gate since its conception in 1999 both financially and as a volunteer. This organization began when a group of counselors realized a need in our area for a Behavioral Health and Substance Abuse Treatment Facility that would serve the indigent and low income people. The counselors are highly trained, professional, and caring people; Willing to give their best even when a client could pay little or nothing for their services. An award was given by the state for the Company's involvement in hiring and training people to enter the workforce. They will continue to serve the indigent and low income. after all, that mis what their counselors love to do.

The Great!

I have had the pleasure of working with Phoenix Gate since 2005, first as a volunteer, then as an employee and now as a board member. I have watched so many people benefit from the programs that Phoenix Gate offers. Many of the clients begin with resentment and finish with the knowledge and confidence to choose a better life for themselves. I have seen clients, who have completed their programs, continue coming to classes just to revisit the environment that they grew to love. This says a lot! The counselors and staff at Phoenix Gate really care about helping people.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the attitudes of the clients after they have completed their programs. Most begin their programs not wanting to be there, and most end their programs wanting to return for continued support. Phoenix Gate is a safe place for them to express and learn to understand their feelings and actions.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make more space for counseling and have more offices open for client convenience.

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

I honestly wouldn't change anything to improve my own experience, however, I think that more space and private rooms for counseling would have improved clients experiences.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Yes definitely. I learned to manage an office and made many lifelong friends.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Very confident.
