When YOU make a donation TODAY to Eva’s, an anonymous donor will match your donation, up to $5,000!

Today, YOU can help youth like Phil. Phil found himself on the streets of Toronto at the age of 16, after his father lost his job and then their apartment. After spending time in shelters across the city, Phil found Eva’s Phoenix.

“I set my mind on staying at Eva’s Phoenix for the full year, and getting a job for the long-term. Through the Eva’s Phoenix Print Shop I connected with a job in the print industry. I began as a press helper and have now worked there for 2 years. In this time I’ve had three raises and now work as a junior pressman. When I first moved from Eva’s Phoenix I was living in shared subsidized accommodation. I now live independently in a 2-bedroom apartment with my younger brother and we are getting along great! Eva’s Phoenix changed my life.”

Thanks to your support, Eva’s is able to provide homeless and at-risk youth with the help they need to open the door to the possibilities that lie within themselves.  Your donation today, which will be matched by our anonymous donor, will help Toronto’s homeless youth, not only this holiday season, but into the future as well. Thank you!

P.S. Remember, this Giving Tuesday, every dollar YOU donate will become $2 to help homeless youth like Phil turn the key to a brighter future.
