Building on the Legacy of Eva Smith
Looking back to look ahead
A History Rooted in Community
Our organization’s innovative approach to ending youth homelessness started with our founder Eva Smith. Her legacy remains central to the work we do.
We are more than a shelter
A Year of Success
Innovation is the core of everything we do at Eva’s. We continue to offer innovative programming to support young people experiencing homeless as they work to build a life of inter-dependence. Use the arrows, or swipe, to see our work.

Lives are transformed at Eva’s
At Eva’s we meet young people where they are at. Learn more about the young people we serve.
We work with youth aged 16-24 years old, any young person experiencing homelessness.
Like all shelters across the City of Toronto, Eva’s sees an over-representation of Black and Indigenous young people.
There is also over-representation of LGBTQ2S+, gender fluid and trans identifying youth and their intersectional identities.
Newcomers and refugee claimants represent a significant increase in our demographics.
