One of the most common risks for the disabled is being homeless. If a person cannot work she cannot pay rent and her housing options dwindle or disappear.
A New Location
In Tucson, one of the primary providers of shelters for the homeless is The Primavera Foundation. They have long had a site for the homeless on South Sixth Avenue. But that location was not ideal for the people they served.
More And Better Services
Now Primavera will have a new building at the same location in Armory Park. This new site will be a pronounced improvement over the old one. Primavera will have a 10,000 square foot resource center, for example. Among the amenities of this new building will be a large courtyard for people to rest and see visitors. Medical
providers from El Rio will see patients in private rooms. They will assist not only with medical problems but dental issues as well. The homeless will have space to store their belongings, addressing one of the big concerns for those without homes.
An Option Should You Ever Need It
I hope that you will never be left homeless due to a disability. But, it is nice to know that there is a new resource available should that come to pass.
