The Detroit Phoenix Center provides resources, support, and a safe environment to high-risk and homeless youth in Detroit. The organization’s Zen Zone offers showers, meals, laundry, transportation, clothing, and other necessities, a computer lab, career readiness, housing crisis support, and more. Its R.I.S.E. Emergency Services Fund provides youth and young adults immediate respite from the elements using housing vouchers and offering basic needs. The nonprofit also offers an after-school program, an alumni program, workforce development, and a scholarship. Its Trailblazers Youth Action Board is a leadership training and personal development program for youth and young adults who have direct experience with homelessness and other adverse societal conditions. Members commit to a yearlong service learning project. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the center has launched Phoenix RISE, a program that offers food and income support, rent assistance and hotel vouchers, cell phone bill support, computers and internet routers, transportation assistance, and delivery of grocery and household items. Its normal operations are limited due to the virus.
