“While staying at Eva’s Place, they helped by giving me a safe place to live and study, allowing me to complete college and accept an offer for the full-time child and youth worker diploma program at Centennial College.” – Christina
Over the years, we have seen a significant increase in the number of youth coming to our shelter with mental health issues. Finding the resources they need has become one of our biggest challenges. In order to expand our capacity to support these youth and give them what they need to succeed, we have fostered relationships with groups such as New Outlook and East Metro Youth Services that provide counselling and referral services. We also receive supports from Inner City Health Associates which provides our residents with access to a physician and psychiatrist to address their health and mental health needs.
Through the Independent Living Program, Eva’s Place provides a variety of life skills, education and employment related activities that help young people gain the skills they need to transition to community living. This includes workshops on cooking, financial literacy, job search, as well as assistance in obtaining identification and legal supports and help in finding and keeping housing.
