The Phoenix Centre follows an addiction services model that uses a collaborative community, social and economic development approach to homelessness and addiction in Surrey.
In 2004, Vancity provided a $1-million award to the Phoenix Centre. Construction was completed in February 2007 and the first residents were welcomed to the Centre on March 6, 2007.
Residents completing this program can then move to a structured post-treatment transitional housing program of 36 furnished studio-style suites. This will allow them to extend their stay in a supportive community while they complete individually tailored action plans for education and employment.
For more information on our other efforts to end the cycle of addiction and homelessness, please check our Phoenix Society programs page.
We are especially grateful to have received a VanCity million-dollar award in 2004 that was instrumental in achieving the fundraising targets to build the Phoenix Centre.
The Phoenix Centre is located at 13686 94A Avenue in Surrey.
