About Day One Society

The Phoenix Centre’s roots were planted in Renfrew County in December 1975. Noticing a lack of support and suitable resources for children with emotional and behavioural challenges and their families, the community united to make a change. A chain of community-based efforts spanning over three years led to the nesting of The Phoenix Centre in 1978, when the Ministry of Community and Social Services confirmed the financial support required to institute a Children’s Mental Health Centre. Since 1978, The Phoenix Centre has grown with the community, offering a warm, safe place to all the children and families of Renfrew County. We currently have 16 full-time therapists and eight child and youth counsellors providing mental health support services to the children, youth, and families of Renfrew County. We strive for your well-being. With our main office located in the heart of beautiful downtown Pembroke, and satellite offices in five communities, our diverse services and programs are accessible throughout the County. Proud neighbours and hosts of the Renfrew County Child Poverty Action Network, Big Brothers Big Sisters Renfrew County and Elevate! Youth Fitness Centre in memory of Krista Johnston, The Phoenix Centre is also affiliated with many local, provincial, and national organizations. Incorporated as Renfrew County Youth Services, our Board of Directors searched for a unique name to identify the agency within the community. The Phoenix Centre was chosen. At The Phoenix Centre for Children and Families, we believe the process of seeking help and change mirrors the flight of the Phoenix. Getting treatment is a challenging process, but, by working through it, children and families can live better and feel stronger than they did before, achieving the extraordinary.
