Eva’s Initiatives

Eva’s Initiatives began in 1994 when Eva’s Place opened its doors to homeless youth aged 16-24. The shelter was named in honour of Eva Smith, a guidance councillor in North York. Eva noticed that youth at-risk and those who were homeless were unrecognized and unsupported in the North York area, and through her advocacy Eva’s Place was created.

Since opening Eva’s Place, Eva’s Initiatives has continued to respond to the needs of homeless and at-risk youth by developing a continuum of service that includes a number of innovative, nationally recognized programs.
