Review for Phoenix Gate Inc, McAlester, OK, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
