I have the privilege to be a part of Phoenix Hometown Hires. I am able to walk, talk, learn, and share with people as they work to renew themselves into a stronger, wiser version.  I am allowed to witness the changes people make in their lives and the joy it brings them.  Who wouldn’t want to witness a Phoenix rising from the fire.
