Integrated housing resource for families, couples, and individuals who are homeless or within two weeks of becoming homeless. Primavera Foundation has joined the community-wide Coordinated Entry assessment and referral system to fill some openings in its housing programs. That system uses the VI-SPDAT, a research-driven screening tool designed to assess an applicant’s vulnerability in the housing market. Though not exclusively, Primavera considers results from the VI-SPDAT and other important information for many of its placements in shelters, rapid re-housing, and permanent housing opportunities.


The program is meant for individuals and families who:

  • are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless;
  • are willing to complete an application and interview should they be considered for housing;
  • will actively participate in individual success planning and follow program rules and regulations; and
  • income qualify (for some programs).

You can apply for housing and shelter programs in-person. An appointment is not required, but may be scheduled.
