    The mission of The Primavera Foundation is to provide pathways out of poverty through safe, affordable housing, workforce development and neighborhood revitalization. During 2007-2012, Primavera spent more than $2,780,930 on affordable housing projects within District 2. (By the end of 2012, we will have spent close to $4,000,000.) These projects have included owner-occupied rehabilitation and replacement of distressed single family housing, purchase, rehabilitation and/or replacement of Real Estate Owned (REO) properties, and development of new single family homes for first time homebuyer families, all located in the City of South Tucson. The rehabilitation and development of new single family homes have focused on green strategies designed to increase energy efficiency, reduce utility bills, improve energy education, and reduce our carbon footprint. All families purchasing homes have completed Homebuyer Education through Primavera. In addition, Primavera recently completed a green rehabilitation of our 28 unit Winstel Terrace Apartments, affordable rental housing for people living on limited incomes. Primavera is currently developing a new multifamily rental housing project for kinship families that will be located in the City of South Tucson. Pima County donated the land for this new project. Primavera’s affordable housing project partners include: the City of South Tucson, Pima County, HUD, NeighborWorks® America, the Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED), and the Federal Home Loan Bank.
