Dear St. George's Society members and friends,

We hope you are well and keeping safe. Each year, the St. George’s Society Toronto helps fund charities in four areas: education, social and community services, health, and the arts. This year, one of these charities was Eva’s Initiatives for Homeless Youth, an award-winning organization that provides shelter, transitional housing, and programs to help young people build brighter futures for themselves  free of homelessness.

Please see on to find out more about this fantastic organization, including who they are and what they do. We'd also like to thank you for your continued support, which allows us to honour our long tradition of giving in the city of Toronto.

 

Eva’s Initiatives for Homeless Youth


Toronto has the largest homeless population in Canada with around 2,000 youth experiencing homelessness every night. Not a statistic to be proud of and one that needs to change. 
For over 30 years, Eva’s Initiatives for Homeless Youth has been a leader in preventing, reducing and ending youth homelessness. Each night, 120+ vulnerable young people experiencing homelessness find a safe place to stay, an offering of nutritious food and crisis 'help' services at Eva’s shelters and residential facility.
 
“Knowing that there is a safe place away from the streets and where I can see a better future for myself, that is real hope.” Kylie, Satellite resident
 

Over 5,000 youth, like Kylie, access vital services each year such as harm reduction, health, family counselling, housing and employment. Eva’s Print Shop, a one-of-a-kind social enterprise, provides training, internships and work placements for youth interested in the graphic and print sector. Every dollar of profit is reinvested into shelter, food, caring support, and basic needs for homeless youth at Eva’s.

This past year has been a challenging time for all of us, and the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic has exasperated the homelessness crisis while exposing inequalities for homeless youth. Eva’s essential frontline workers have been there every step of the way supporting these resilient young people, helping them to start a new journey towards a healthier, more prosperous future.
 
Should you wish to make a donation or learn more about Eva’s, you may check out their website.  If you’d like to participate in a virtual tour, please email Rebecca Grace.
Every Day, Eva’s provides shelter, housing, and support for 120+ young people aged between 16 to 24.
