Phoenix Employment Ministries

StepUp Wilmington (formerly Phoenix Hometown Hires) works to eliminate barriers to employment experienced by people with gaps in education, criminal records, transportation needs, and history of substance abuse. The group's annual Luncheon is Wednesday, 5/16 at UNCW's Burney Center.

Don Skinner launched Phoenix Employment Ministries in 2002.  He just retired from his post as the Executive Director and by December, he'll be fully retired.  We had the opportunity to chat with Don as he reflects on the work he's done and how to release it as he leaves the organization in able hands.
