  • Phoenix Club Ribbon Cutting

    Please join us on May 22nd for our Phoenix Club Ribbon Cutting Before the Camp Fire struck, there were five BGCNV sites in Paradise. Three of five Paradise BGCNV sites embedded at elementary schools were destroyed. We adjusted our programs rapidly to follow our partnership with Paradise Unified School District to create temporary Clubs and increase membership in our two Chico Clubs. The greatest unmet need has been in Chico until we can rebuild in Paradise. The Phoenix Club will expand our ability to be a trauma responsive care program with a focus on resiliency for up to 150+ additional Paradise and Magalia displaced youth.
