About Us

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.


Our Story

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.

Our Mission

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.
