Phoenix Drop-In Center Community

Sign up here to participate on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday afternoons at


No special training is required. All participants under 18 must have an accompanying parent.

The Phoenix is located at 34 E. Green, just east of Neil Street, under the railroad viaduct, on the north side of the street. Parking is behind the building, accessed via Locust Street.

Participating in The Phoenix community can be as simple as enjoying a cup of coffee with someone new, playing guitar, painting, drawing, reading, or helping us with security to keep everyone safe.


One way your church can get involved with The Phoenix is by recruiting folks to staff the Phoenix for a day each week. We already have one church partnership established for Tuesdays. Stratford Park Bible Chapel is hosting the Phoenix each Tuesday. That means they will be providing a minimum of 3 people to serve in specific roles for the 5 hours that we are open each Tuesday:

  • Receptionist
  • Computer Assistant
  • Floor Rover

In addition, one person for each shift is the designated shift leader. First Christian Church is putting the word out to build interest in staffing Thursdays at the Phoenix. We hope to add more days and times as more churches and groups partner with us on a weekly basis to staff The Phoenix.

If your church is interested in partnering with us at the Phoenix, please contact us at or 217-819-4569. Thank you.
