The Story

In 2016, Founders Alberto Lopez and Abbie Holland Schmit were motivated by the needs of the service member communities they experienced as a part of their service in the armed forces and in the veteran non-profit sector. Building upon their years of service to those communities, Alberto and Abbie have established Phenix Legacy, an organized nonprofit in the State of Illinois and a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit, to help military veterans, first responders, and their families navigate the gaps experienced during difficult transitions that so often act as an obstacle to empowerment and advancement.
