Empowering Individuals and Families, Creating Home

Primavera co-creates tangible pathways out of poverty for individuals and families. We focus our efforts on the root causes of poverty and homelessness and partner with community members as they overcome barriers that kept them from obtaining safe, affordable, permanent housing.

Program participants have the option of strengthening skills and assets, obtaining employment, finding a safe, affordable home, building sustainable financial futures, advocating for their rights, and connecting with their communities.

Through our work with participants, residents and community partners, we employ a shared vision and cross-sector collaborative strategy to create healthy, vibrant neighborhoods and communities.

For the first time, my daughter and I have our own place. We have stability.” – Alexia
