Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
Here at The Phoenix House, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2019, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress. Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.
The Phoenix House was established in 2019 by 2 sexual assault nurse examiners who had previously worked for a similar agency that covered 7 counties in the State of New Mexico. The data from that organization determined a significant number of sexual assault cases (adults and children) were occurring in Lea County. The 2 nurses decided there was enough demand in Lea County to support its own sexual assault unit. Hence, The Phoenix House Sexual Assault & Domestic Violence Resource Center was established.
To provide education and prevention information through holistic care by providing trauma informed services such as forensic exams, crisis/legal advocacy, and resources for survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, strangulation, child injury, stalking and human trafficking, free of charge, within the rural southeast area of New Mexico.
