At the very core of the Vital Proteins mission is a commitment to helping others live full, vibrant lives - a commitment that stretches far beyond the products we produce. We believe everyone should have an opportunity to flourish, and we recognize the importance of partaking in this promise through community-based charitable work.
The Primo Center for Women and Children is an organization that pledges to help individuals - many of whom have been victims of physical or sexual violence - live their happiest, healthiest lives by providing resources to empower them with productivity, responibility and independence. Through the center's dedication, hard work and innovative approach, it has made a profound impact on the lives of many families facing homelessness within the Chicago community.
Help us in our quest to provide support to the Primo Center for Women and Children, a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization committed to helping and empowering families facing homelessness. The foundation we lay together will foster growth for this organization so that it can continue to develop impactful programs and provide essential resources to communities facing homelessness around the Chicagoland area – and one day soon, the country.
"My thought of a shelter was one big room, lots of people... So, I really did not want to go. But when I went to the Primo Center, I'll never forget - It was so, so nice. It was a blessing for me and my kids."
- Cortland, Current Staff Member, Former Resident
"I think (going to the Primo Center) was the best decision I ever made. I can finally focus on myself, it's peaceful...It made me feel so proud of myself. I've matured so much - I'm very proud of myself."
Erica, New Apartment Renter, Former Resident
"What I see at Primo is a community of families working and living together, and supporting one another - not just as far as adults, but the children as well."
- Kristin, Program Partner, Chicago HOPES for Kids
