Phoenix Rising.

Valley Cities’ Phoenix Rising program provides 24 single occupancy units for homeless young adults, ages 18-25, needing permanent supportive housing.  Understanding that homelessness is first and foremost a housing crisis, Valley Cities’s allows for broad access to services with few disqualifiers. Phoenix Rising is not simply housing for these young people.

Phoenix Rising combines housing with the specialized services that young people need to successfully transition from homelessness to independent living. These services include case management, peer mentorship, job training, classes to promote independent living, and personalized support. In addition, residents can be linked to behavioral health services and primary care at our adjacent Auburn clinic, and connected to other appropriate services through their Care Team.
