Who we are

About Phoenix Project Collaborative Partners

The Phoenix Project works in collaboration with eight indigenous community-based organizations in San Francisco that are uniquely positioned to work with underserved youth. When considering optimal development from a culturally – specific place, many indigenous communities would adhere to the African proverb,”It takes a village to raise a child.” However, from a trauma-informed perspective, it is quite probable that many urban communities struggle with complex trauma and other challenges that adversely impact development. Therefore, the question that follows is: what to do if the village is hurting? One response is the CBO Phoenix Project. We have formed a professional village in support of the youth to be served. In alignment with the cultural perspective, the CBOs are referred to as Village Partners.

Our Goal

Mpatapo symbol of harmony represents our goal to disrupt intergenerational poverty, and reduce social isolation across communities. We believe that the neighborhood will only get better if you work on yourself first.

Target Population

  • The Phoenix Project seeks to identify youth living within four HOPE SF sites that have historically been isolated communities: Hunters View (West Point), Alice Griffith (Double Rock), Sunnydale and Potrero Terrace, and Annex
  • HOPE SF is the nation’s first large-scale reparations housing and transformation effort aimed at disrupting intergenerational poverty, reducing social isolation, and creating racially equitable mixed-income communities without mass displacement
  • Phoenix Project focuses on building intentional relationships with transitional age youth in disconnected areas within the community who may need access to various resources including education, employment, mental health, and physical health well-being.
