For the last couple of weeks Phoenix House has been excelling
in one of its leading programs “Work Ready”
Our Executive Director Edmund D’Cruz has been nominated for Pro Bono Australia’s 2019 Impact 25 Awards.
Driven by the passion and determination ‘to provide every young person with the opportunity to realise their full potential’; Edmund has led an impressive 3 year transformation of Phoenix House from homelessness service to an innovative and successful service, providing ‘alternative education’ to 300+ ‘at risk’ young people annually, in Northern Sydney. With his highly enthusiastic and dedicated team, Phoenix House has undergone a rigorous journey of change, documented by a Monash University research team, with Dr Ferreira calling it a ‘remarkable story of resilience’. Phoenix House received the Australia Day Community Group of the Year 2019 Award from North Sydney Council.
The Impact 25 awards aim is to showcase the work of amazing and deserving individuals across the sector and we believe that Edmund is a great fit for it!
