The Bryan Bausch Foundation is a non-profit initiative dedicated to raising charity for the Phoenix House of Recovery. BBF is founded in memory of Bryan, who we recently lost fighting his addiction to heroin. Our goal is to keep Bryan’s memory alive by organizing the necessary funds to provide adequate room and board to meet the ever-growing demand for treatment of substance abuse.
