Who We Are
Rise Phoenix Rise, Inc. is a new 501(c)(3) nonprofit Animal Assisted Wellness Program for Mental Health Peers. Our mission is to provide a safe, stigma-free environment where mental health peers can have the opportunity to interact with companion animals as well as participate in various activities that promote healthy mental hygiene. The vision of Rise Phoenix Rise is to share the benefits of rescued animals with those struggling with mental illness. Rescued animals are magical healers who will be beneficial to the mental health community. Together the companion animals and the mental health peers can “rise from the ashes” of their struggles into wellness.
