This holiday season,

your donation can have double the impact

to meet the urgent needs of youth experiencing homelessness.

Thanks to the generosity of The Sprott Foundation, all donations made by December 31, 2022, will be matched up to $400,000.

Your donation can provide joyful futures to people like Raiesa.

Hear more of Raiesa’s story in her own words:

As a teen, Raiesa lived in a group home and experienced an abusive situation where she was given drugs and trafficked. “There would be days at a time that I would go missing and no one checked up on me,” she says.

Thankfully, a guidance counsellor at Raiesa’s school stepped in and found her a place at Eva’s. “It changed my life,” says Raiesa. “Before, so many people were trying to take advantage of me. Eva’s was the exact opposite.” Raiesa received 24-7 caring support that set her on a hopeful path. After an open mic night at Eva’s, the staff encouraged Raiesa to pursue her dream of becoming a performer.

Today, Raiesa is living in her own apartment, performing her music three nights a week, and enjoying the stability she always longed for. “If I didn’t go to Eva’s, I wouldn’t be here,” says Raiesa. “I want other young people to know that you can turn your story around. There’s always hope.”

Please donate today and help feed joyful futures for the young people we serve.
