Survival

DROP-IN CENTERS

Survival – For many men, women, and families who are homeless, the first step to getting off the streets is connecting to one of Primavera’s emergency services programs where they will find immediate relief and shelter as they recover from economic crisis. These programs often serve as the first stepping-stone out of poverty, assisting people to acquire the information and skills needed to live independently and offset future crises.


Speak to a Resource Specialist About Options

The first step on the pathway out of poverty starts with a conversation with one of Primavera's Resource Specialists. We are here to listen to your story, to work with you on an what you need to move in the direction you set for your life.

To meet a resource specialist, stop by Homeless Intervention and Prevention. No appointment necessary during scheduled business hours. Feel free to call anytime, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm.
