Phoenix Project in initial phase of re-establishing services for domestic and sexual violence victim
FRONT ROYAL — United Way executive director Lee Smith Osina has found an apt metaphor from Greek mythology to describe a special campaign that will soon be launched to provide funding for revitalized services to victims of domestic and sexual violence. “The Phoenix is rising from the ashes in Front Royal!” Osina states in a press release, referring to the mythical bird that flew so close to the sun that it was consumed by fire and fell to earth in ashes, only to revive itself as a new creature. Osina said the Phoenix Project is the name the United Way has given to an interim program designed to restore services that were lost to Front Royal and Warren County when Harmony Place was forced to close in October 2013.
