COVID-19 Update from Eva’s Initiatives for Homeless Youth

The young people we serve, and our staff are of the utmost priority to us here at Eva’s. During this pandemic, as at any time, youth experiencing homelessness are extremely vulnerable to the spread of viruses and illnesses.  Learn how we’ve navigated the pandemic and what we are doing to ensure we limit the spread of COVID-19.  We also invite you to read this letter to our caring Eva’s family about the impact of COVID-19 for Eva’s.

YOU MAKE CHANGE.
