About Phoenix

Incorporated and founded in 1973 as The Huntsville Rehabilitation Foundation, Inc., the organization was later rebranded with the name of Phoenix. Phoenix is a 501c3 nonprofit, owned, and governed by a volunteer board of directors, comprised of several local business leaders, professionals, and civic leaders, who all donate their time to provide oversight and guidance of Phoenix’s mission and vision.

Phoenix works with the Alabama Department of Rehabilitation Services (ADRS) to provide comprehensive and continuous programs to assist people with disabilities entering, remaining, and returning to the work environment.
