The pandemic’s health and financial impacts are especially difficult for those living in poverty, including those experiencing homelessness in Tucson. As the crisis continues more people are pushed into extremely dire circumstances. We heard from leaders and volunteers with local nonprofits that are doing what they can to help others.
At downtown Tucson’s Z Mansion, volunteers with the WORKship project assemble seven days a week to provide a warm meal to go for people living on the street. The nonprofit also provides blankets, clothing and first aid to those in need.

The Primavera Foundation offers a variety of services that include helping people secure affordable housing and work toward financial stability. During the pandemic, the nonprofit has seen demand grow for its eviction prevention and utility assistance services.
