The Phoenix Center opened in 2001 as a safe space for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) youth to meet. Since those early days we have expanded to provide other programs and services. Current services include:

      • LGBTQA Youth Group
      • Free HIV, Hepatitis C Testing, Condoms
      • Billy’s House Transitional Housing Program
      • Community Education & Outreach
      • SHaRI Project (Springfield Harm Reduction Program)
      • Counseling & Support Groups
      • Springfield PrideFest

If you are in need of a particular service that we do not offer, please feel to call us – maybe we can provide a referral or help you in some way!

Thank you for visiting our site!
