Emergency Services


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 and finding 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. 

If you are a woman with children and need immediate shelter, please contact the Gospel Rescue Mission Women and Children's Shelter: (520) 740-1501 x7101 located at 707 W. Miracle Mile, Tucson, AZ.

Meet Glenda

She never thought she’d ever be homeless, feeling so “worthless and useless.”

After rehabilitation from temporary paralysis, an ex-husband’s abandonment that left her alone fighting for her Canadian work visa, and sleeping in her car, she found hope at Casa Paloma Women’s Hospitality Center and Residence.

Now, she’s living in stable rental housing and patiently waiting for her temporary residency visa so she can again work as a certified legal nurse consultant.
