Primavera's Project Action for Veterans program provides housing support services and temporary financial assistance to veterans and their families that are facing eviction or homelessness. Services are aimed at addressing barriers that threaten the veteran and/or their family’s housing stability. The program acts as a resource liaison connecting veterans to public and community resources that are vital to a better quality of life.
Support services include but are not limited to connecting veterans with the following resources:
- VA benefits
- job training assistance
- healthcare services
- daily living services
- personal financial planning services
- income support services (TANF, disability benefits, etc.)
- fiduciary and representative payee services
- legal services
- childcare services
Temporary financial assistance is provided for the following:
- rent and utilities deposits
The Primavera Foundation is committed to delivering high-quality services to all persons served. We are equally committed to maintaining a high level of quality standards for business practice. We are proud to demonstrate this commitment by achieving a three-year Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) accreditation for the Project Action for Veterans program as of April 2018.
What does this mean?
- Persons served and their families look for organizations that are accredited as a sign of quality when looking for services.
- Accreditation is evidence to persons served that an organization has demonstrated its commitment to encouraging feedback, continuously improving services, enhancing performance, and managing risk.
- Persons served and their families can be confident that services will be focused on their unique needs.
When a service or program is CARF accredited, it means it has undergone an in-depth review of its services and demonstrated substantial conformance to the CARF standards during the on-site survey. The service or program has demonstrated its commitment to delivering quality services that focus on your needs and preferences. CARF International is an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services.

Alfonso Escalante L. served four years in the Air Force and 16 years in the Air National Guard.
He lost his wife to cancer, was laid off from work after 20 years, lost his home, and he became injured.
He was relieved when Primavera's Project Action for Veterans program helped him secure housing and connected him to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for the grief counseling and health care that he needed.
"Project Action for Veterans helped me so much that I want to show others how they could get help, too."
