About Phoenix Youth Programs

Since 1987, Phoenix has been dedicated to supporting youth and contributing to a vibrant community. Phoenix's fourteen locations in Halifax/K'jipuktuk provide a continuum of care for youth ages 11-24 and their families. We offer important services and programs including shelter, food, housing support, health care, parenting support, recreation, education and employment services, and clinical therapy. Our team of caring professionals recognizes that each person who comes to us has individual needs as well as strengths. People are the leaders in their own lives; Phoenix is a leader in supporting them.
