2019 is an exciting year for Eva’s as it marks 30 years since the creation of our organization, first called North York Emergency Home for Youth and 25 years since the establishment of our first shelter, Eva’s Place, the first youth-focused shelter in North York.

It’s all thanks to Eva Maud Smith, whose advocacy and leadership shone a light on hidden youth homelessness.

Today is the Anniversary of Eva Smith’s Birthday, and we’re starting our anniversary celebrations by honouring the work and legacy of one ‘likkle but tallawa’ (i.e. Jamaican for “small but mighty”) woman!
