The Second Chance Employer Luncheon was fantastic! We had a great turnout of over 100 people representing local Tucson employers who are open to hiring returning citizens and learning more about our upcoming Re-Entry Job & Resource Fair in September. City of Tucson Mayor Rothschild spoke, along with others. Special thanks to Elise Townsend, Primavera DTAP job developer; Evelyn Yecies, Primavera job developer; Maya Luria; the Mayor's Office, and so many more helpful hands for coordinating this important event.

Second Chance is a collaborative effort through the sponsored partnerships of Cenpatico Integrated Care, Pima County Attorney's Office, University of Arizona Law, City of Tucson, Arizona, and many other community collaborators which includes the Primavera Foundation. Second Chance provides employment opportunities for people overcoming a prior conviction to establish a prosperous future. Learn more: http://www.secondchancetucson.org.

On behalf of the Primavera Foundation's Project Action for Veterans, in honor of Armed Forces Day tomorrow, we'd like to pay tribute to the men & women who serve (or have served) in the United States Armed Forces. And while we honor these heroes, would you like to be our hero? You could make it easier for those who are struggling to find pathways out of poverty by being our Wish List Hero! Can you help? Here's our current wish list of needs, which includes a work truck that our Primavera Works program so badly needs because one of them broke down completely and needs to be replaced: http://bit.ly/2mtVyK2 ...Thank you for your generous support.

The Primavera Cooks! Summer Dining Series is quite possibly the most fun you will ever have at a nonprofit fundraising dinner! Each year we fill select local Tucson restaurants like Tavolino, Agustin, and Pastiche with a lively group of socially conscious diners who want to support the programs and services of the Primavera Foundation and have a great night out. Join us for one of these amazing, multi-course, wine-paired, gourmet dinners created by some of Tucson’s top chefs and find out why diners return year after year. http://bit.ly/2pMqWsO

"I wanted to be a great mother. More than anything, I wanted my daughter to grow up with a stable life, with stable housing. I wanted to provide for my daughter, but I didn’t know how. My aunt told me about the Primavera Foundation. At first, they helped me create a budgeting plan. Then, they taught my daughter about finances. For the first time in my life, I no longer felt like I was all on my own. I started taking homeownership classes at Primavera. Although I had 5 years to save for my down payment, I am proud to say that I reached my goal in just 2 years. For the first time, my daughter and I have our own place. We have stability." ~Alexa Ramirez, Primavera Foundation Her Family Program Participant & New Homeowner [grantee speaker at the recent Women's Foundation of Southern Arizona Annual Luncheon]

Great News Today - Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild held a press conference today to announce that the Arizona Department of Housing (ADOH) awarded the Primavera Foundation and our partner, Our Family Services, new funding for rapid rehousing and homeless prevention services!

This program will bring additional rapid rehousing resources to our community. We'll be working with ADOH and the other community organizations in the coming weeks to finalize the standards and logistics for the new program, including the referral process through the community coordinated entry system.
