The mission of Primo Center is to empower families to become productive, responsible, and
independent members of their community.

Today, Primo Center is a leader in providing family shelter and permanent supportive housing,
integrated physical, dental, and mental health care, early childhood development, and
supportive services to homeless families in Chicago. The organization has considerable
capacity and experience as a provider of services to families affected by extreme poverty and
homelessness, assisting more than 1100 people each year with the aid of volunteers, over 90
staff members, and an annual operating budget of nearly $10 million.

Primo Center works in high-need communities across Chicago, operating facilities in Austin on
Chicago’s west side, Englewood on the south side, and Hermosa on the northwest side.
