Phoenix house build spring 2018

Help us build the next Phoenix House Tuscaloosa!

The Phoenix House, Inc. of Tuscaloosa is a freestanding, non-profit transitional housing facility that began operation in the late 1960's as a half-way house for alcoholic men and evolved to its current mission and structure in 1994. The primary mission is to assist individuals in their recovery from alcohol and drug addiction and help them return to society as productive members. Success is achieved through individual, group and family counseling, vocational and adult education, life skills training and job training/placements.
