A collection of impactful remarks told in their own words by Primavera Foundation participants, Primavera Works customers, donors, volunteers, community partners, funders, Board of Directors, and team members.
"Primavera provides a bed, hot showers, and a staff second to none. They helped me get a job, housing, and enough time to sort out my life and get headed in the right direction (in 90 days). If you come here, be ready to invest all of your energy in yourself. The experience will make you a much better person."
~Primavera Men's Shelter participant
“Primavera is a gem. We enjoy volunteering with them because they have a huge impact on the homeless community; offering shelter and food, educational opportunities, and work programs.”
~Primavera volunteer (Jewish Community Relations Council social action chair)
"Wow! How wonderful it is that my son says his ABC's on his own now thanks to the Las Abuelitas After School program."
~Primavera Affordable Rental Housing resident
"I view your participation in DTAP and Second Chance nothing short of divinity. Your impact was abundantly clear just in the participants alone. It was inspiring to me, and gave me a renewed sense of purpose in the important work being done. You gave them the tools to make that happen. It's not just getting them a job. It's changing the rest of their lives. It's an honor to work with you, and to know you. Congratulations on a wonderful event." (In reference to the Second Chance Re-Entry Job & Resource Fair that Primavera co-organizes annually.)
~Pima County Attorney's Office Drug Treatment Alternative to Prison (DTAP) Program Manager
"I think about what Primavera has done for me every day, so now I'm paying it forward every day."
~Primavera Men's Shelter residential team lead (former Primavera Men's Shelter participant)
"I decided to volunteer with Primavera because I was impressed with their professional website and interested in the concept of their sustainability programs."
