What We Do

The Primavera Foundation was started by members of our community in 1983 by people who were really concerned about the most vulnerable members of our community. Here we are so many years later, Primavera continues to provide not just vital services, but economic investment back into the community so that everyone has a safe place to call home. When the most marginalized have equity, we are all enriched, and our community can thrive.




The Primavera Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization located in Tucson, Arizona.

The Primavera Foundation provides pathways out of poverty through safe, affordable housing, workforce development, and neighborhood revitalization.

To promote social and economic justice, while working to build a future in which all people are assured basic human rights, a livable income, and safe, affordable housing.

We believe in the intrinsic value of every individual, and that everyone deserves a voice and has the ability to make a difference.


  • Economic empowerment and long-term financial security
  • Neighborhood revitalization
  • Community and civic engagement
  • Empowering the most marginalized in our community to affect long-term positive change for themselves and their families
