Like the mythical bird that inspired its name, The Phoenix House will represent renewal and restoration — providing a place where unsheltered women, striving to sustain sobriety, can find peace and stability as they ascend from the ashes of addiction.
A new sober-living house for women 18 and older who are completing addiction treatment and lacking permanent housing, The Phoenix House is a program of St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County located at SVdP’s Hub Campus, 717 Hwy. 99 N. It faces The Hub, a clinic that provides basic medical, mental-health and recovery services for the unhoused population.

Supporting the Phoenix House
In 2020, a local couple told McDonald that they wanted to direct a $100,000 donation to SVdP for a project that would get more unsheltered people housed.
Thanks to the first and then a second matching private donation, SVdP was able to order the custom-designed quint unit. But the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic would both delay delivery of the completed building and ultimately change how SVdP would put it to use.
“What became apparent was that we should look for a program-enriched transitional program, where there would be services associated with this new unit,” Executive Director, Terry McDonald explains.
After consultation with Willamette Family and other partners, SVdP staff recognized the need for a residential program dedicated to one gender coming out of addiction treatment.
We are so greatful for all of our donors. Thank you.
