We believe passionately in giving back. Phoenix Preferred Care, as well as Phoenix Wellness, were founded on the desire to give back to our community through service and education. Below are a few of the ongoing efforts we support.
Phoenix Wellness, Inc. is a 501c3 charitable non-profit organization committed to addressing emotional, environmental, intellectual, occupational, physical, social and spiritual needs for individuals in our community. Based within the facilities of Phoenix Preferred Care in Somerset, Kentucky, Phoenix Wellness offers a variety of classes centered around individual wellness. For class schedules and the latest info, visit the Wellness page.
Phoenix Racing is a division of Phoenix Wellness, Inc. that utilizes running and other athletic events as vehicles to teach the concepts of servant leadership and a healthy lifestyle for children and families in the Lake Cumberland region. By surrounding children with positive mentors and a healthy peer group, they learn to lead a physically active lifestyle, improve their ability to socialize, improve their self-image and gain a sense of genuine accomplishment.
Why was Phoenix Racing created?
Phoenix Racing began in the spring of 2013 as a result of our staff recognizing that the children we served often improved behaviorally much faster when we addressed their sense of connectedness to the community and assessed if they were eating, sleeping and exercising appropriately than with traditional talk therapy alone. A race team was the perfect vehicle for addressing these issues as running demands that a child eats and sleeps properly, puts in the practice to perform and gains a sense of accomplishment upon completion of a race!
