Phoenix Society serves burn survivors, loved ones, burn care professionals, researchers, and anyone else committed to empowering the burn community and building a safer world.

Founded by Alan Breslau in 1977, Phoenix Society is now the leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering people affected by a burn injury. Our seeds were planted when Alan, a burn survivor of a 1963 airplane crash, visited a young boy in a burn center shortly after his accident. There, he recognized the transformative power of peer support.

Overdose Provention Worker/Social Service Worker in Abbotsford, BC

Informative about understanding of inter-disciplinary building of team work enviroment..

The PARC program is serving a variety of needs for individuals that are street intrenched, which is fast paced and intense when an overdose occurs, this is where a good knowledge of team work is necessary for best practice outcomes. My favourite part of my job is knowing that I am doing Gods work in my community.

Great clients but thoughtless and disconnected leadership/mgmt.

Working with the clients at Phoenix is great. It is a highly rewarding place to work because of the clients. At time of this review (Dec 2022), the Management/ "leadership" overseeing Mental Health and clinical care at Phoenix are grossly unqualified, and disconnected from client welfare. As such, working with clients becomes nearly impossible due to erratic decision making and belittling from mgmt. Best to avoid working at Phoenix in its current state.

Apply Elsewhere

Phoenix Society looks great on paper however, as staff quickly learn, how they portray themselves on social media is a far cry from how things actually are. Phoenix Society is one of the most negligent, mismanaged and under qualified organizations that I have ever had the displeasure of working for. There is a reason why this organization is constantly hiring. The managers at the main campus are extremely toxic and self serving and create a hostile work environment. It is such a shame because the clients here deserve so much better. Do yourself a favour: apply elsewhere.

Stay away !

Burnout is highly likely in this environment due to lack of support and lack of staff. Turn over rate for staff is vey high due to lack of support from management. You are not valued as an employee. Very toxic workplace. Pay is very low. Would not recommend working here.
