“My name is Gloria and I have a sister Steffani that attends Fenix Group. I can tell you that my sister really enjoys the activities and her social skills have improved greatly. Steffani is very shy when it comes to others, but when Fenix Group had a talent show she sang a song in front of everyone. Fenix Group has done wonders for my sister and she looks forward to going everyday.”

SPECIAL OLYMPICS

Fenix Group is proud to be involved with Special Olympics year-round. Our clients have participated in softball, soccer, basketball, flag football, bowling and cheerleading. The benefits of participation in sports include new skill development, a boost in self-confidence, and an improvement in social skills.

 

Special Olympics Arizona provides meaningful training and competition opportunities for persons with intellectual disabilities, including age-appropriate activities and activities for lower ability athletes. Athletes can compete at a variety of levels that accommodate a diverse range of abilities.

 

The lessons learned in Special Olympics also impact life skills. Sports training enhances focus and gives participants a structure for learning important lessons about perseverance, endurance and setting goals. Many people are surprised to know that more than half (52%) of adult Special Olympics athletes in the United States are employed, versus 10 percent of intellectually disabled persons who do not participate in Special Olympics.

AKTION CLUB

Aktion Club is a community-service group composed of adult citizens living with disabilities. The Litchfield Kiwanis Club, composed of leading business and professional people of the community, serves as the sponsor of the Aktion Club of Avondale. The mission of the Aktion Club is to provide adult citizens living with a disability an opportunity to develop initiative and leadership, to serve their community, to be integrated into society, and to demonstrate the dignity and value of citizens living with disabilities.

 

The Aktion Club of Avondale was established in the summer of 2013. The club was started with 31 charter members. Twenty one of the members are from Fenix Group and the other ten members are adult students from the Agua Fria Union High School District. The club meets weekly on Friday mornings at Fenix Group and conducts their meetings identical to those of Litchfield Kiwanis Club. The Aktion Club of Avondale is one of only two clubs in Maricopa County.

 

The Aktion Club volunteers regularly at Hope’s Closet and the New Life Center. Hope’s Closet is a local thrift store whose proceeds go directly to the New Life Center. The New Life Center provides a place of refuge and care for over 1200 women and children every year. The Aktion Club also gets involved with community outreach. Aktion Club members recently stuffed back to school items into 100 backpacks for needy children in the community and helped repaint local fire hydrants.
