Eva’s provides shelter, transitional housing, and programming to help youth experiencing or at risk of homelessness in Toronto. Our expert staff help young people in need reach their potential and lead fulfilling, healthy lives.
Eva’s was founded in 1989 by Eva Smith, a Jamaican immigrant, advocate, and activist. Eva’s consists of four sites located across Toronto, housing 157 young people, aged 16-24, each night. At Eva’s, we work with each young person to develop an achievable action plan. This includes employment and training, building life skills, and developing an education plan to help them attain their goals and build strong community connections as they continue in their journeys to independence.
Eva’s was recognized by Charity Intelligence as one of Canada’s top 100 charities in 2021.
