The Phoenix: Hope is Rising from Phil Gioja on Vimeo.

In 2016, The Phoenix: Hope Is Rising was screened at 21+ locations in Illinois and at several film festivals across the country. Pastor Dale DeNeal from Second Church in Danville IL helped us screen the film and held a panel discussion with local experts on homelessness, with the hope of sparking discussions and action around this issue.

The Phoenix: Hope Is Rising was produced by Phil Gioja and Isaac Musgrave. Find out more about the film at
