Among those that we proudly serve are many military veterans and their families. Primavera’s Project Action for Veterans is entering its seventh year of remarkable service.
In the recent fiscal year that ended June 30, 2017, our goals were to provide housing and wraparound services to 225 veteran households and have 80% exit the program with permanent, sustainable housing. Many of these individuals and families were facing daunting challenges, including eviction, homelessness, unemployment, substance abuse, mental health issues, and a perceived and pervasive lack of hope.
We well-surpassed these goals, having served 286 veteran households, with 88% exiting the program with permanent, sustainable housing, and strong foundations for the future.
