Program History:

The Phoenix Residence, Inc. (PRI) was incorporated August 2 1974 and opened in October 1977 as a private non-profit facility for adults with developmental and physical disabilities. Phoenix was created as a community alternative to Regional Treatment Centers. A group of parents seeking a better life for their grown children were the pioneers that led the way for PRI. The original flagship facility served 51 individuals that required an accessible barrier free living environment. Individuals had a spectrum of cognitive abilities ranging from borderline to profound intellectual challenges. Most, if not all, individuals that resided at PRI were totally physically disabled and required personal support to assist with all activities of daily living. Many individuals were also considered medically fragile.

The Phoenix Residence, Inc. combined residential and Day Program services at the same location until about 1990 when a separate corporation was developed to provide Day Program Services. The sister corporation Phoenix Service Corporation (PSC) was also developed in 1990. PSC is certified as a Rehabilitation Agency.

Phoenix expanded its services to Home an Community Based Services in the late 80s and continued on this path with seeking approval from the Department of Human Services in 2003 to relocate individuals from the 51 bed facility to small 6-bedroom homes in communities near family and friends. The relocation project was successful with the final home opening in 2005.

PRI sold the original facility located at 135 Colorado St. East in 2008 and moved to its new corporate office at 330 Marie Ave East in West Saint Paul Minnesota.
