Your pathway out of poverty starts here. Your first stepping-stone is connecting to emergency services at the Primavera Foundation. You may begin to regain your dignity through staff and volunteer compassion, mail and voice messages, essential toiletries, and showers. You may find immediate relief and shelter as you recover from economic crisis while acquiring information and connecting with additional support services to live independently and offset future crises. 

Stop by the Center

We are here to listen to your story and to work with you about what you need in order to move in a positive direction in your life. You may need to:

  • BREAK FROM THE WEATHER - We provide shelter and housing options as well as a way to escape the elements. Additionally, we provide material assistance in the form of blankets, water, and sunscreen.
  • RECEIVE HYGIENE ITEMS - We provide restrooms and a variety of basic hygiene products, and over-the-counter medications to those in need. Products available depend upon donations received. Not all products are available at all times. Eligibility: Provide us with your name and some basic demographic information.
  • RECEIVE A FOOD BOX - We provide food boxes distributed through the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona once a month to individuals and families, as well as occasional donated food items, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Eligibility: Provide us with your name, photo ID, some basic demographic information, and proof of residence.
  • OBTAIN AN ARIZONA ID - We provide a resource to obtain Arizona identification, including acquiring source documents to obtain ID's. Learn More
