Phoenix Gate Inc
June 14, 2011

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.
