Some of our inspiring women volunteers like Susan Friese [second from right] and friends, along with our Volunteer Coordinator, Eric Cross, welcome home the women of our newly renovated Casa Paloma Women's Hospitality Center & Residence with a breakfast reception prepared especially for them. The beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers, delicious breakfast foods, clothing donations, and their positive spirits brought many smiles to all of our faces. Every year, this group of volunteers hosts a holiday party for the women, but because it was temporarily closed during the improvement project, they decided to wait until earlier this year to still honor the women who come to Primavera seeking a chance to improve their own lives. Special thanks to the Bonny Kay Fund, the Arizona Attorney General's Office, and so many more donors, funders, community partners, and staff who helped make this happen--not only to complete the project--but to help the Casa Paloma women regain some dignity and respect in a safe haven.

Our Community Garden Coordinator and AmeriCorps Member, Sam Miller, cultivates good health and strengthens community at five Primavera properties. At Winstel Apartments for example, Sam works with the residents to develop a produce sharing program for the complex. She helps garden program participants harvest produce, which is bagged and delivered to the homes of residents who are unable to garden due to a disability or other challenge. As an outgrowth of the program, residents began bringing their unused non-perishables to the weekly gardening days to share with their neighbors, too. #AmeriCorpsWorks4AZ

Our Primavera Works employment agency/social enterprise was one of 51 grantees out of 193 applications requesting an "Access to Housing and Economic Assistance for Development" (AHEAD) grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco. We received a $40,000 grant to be used for our job training program that will boost economic development and promote stability and self-sufficiency. Special thanks to Barbara Boone and Pamela Gorder with Western Alliance Bancorporation.

The focus of these AHEAD grants is to support innovative economic development and job training or job creation initiatives that benefit low-and moderate-income communities throughout AZ, CA, and NV, and have the potential to help narrow the wealth gap.

Primavera’s CEO, Peggy Hutchison [second from right], traveled with additional Southern Arizona leaders to the State Capitol for a day of advocacy and education to meet with dozens of legislators. They presented the Women's Foundation of Southern Arizona’s latest research report on the relationship between economic dependence and access to childcare for single moms.
