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.

Phoenix Team

Phoenix Project youth have access to Youth Development Advocate that will support youth through barriers (transportation, housing, education, etc.) they may encounter. We Serve:

  • Transitional Age Youth: Age 14 – 24
  • Residing in one of the four HOPE SF communities.
  • Not enrolled or not attending school
  • Unemployed or Underemployed (10 hours or less per week)

Phoenix Project youth routinely meet with a life coach who guides them through our unique BPSS model (Bio-psycho-social-cultural-spiritual assessment) which allows youth to drive their future.
