Sometimes youth get turned away from services because they’re struggling with #addictions and #mentalhealth challenges. But Eva’s is here for them. “I needed shelter and I went to one, but I got kicked out for being an addict and showing ‘addict behaviors’," shares Michael, a former Eva’s resident. "Eva’s was the only place that would take me in my current condition.” And we’re so glad he came to us. We do our best to meet youth wherever they are at in their journeys, because that's when the most amazing things happen. “Eva’s gave me respect, dignity, and safety," says Michael. "I was able to keep away from people in the drug scene keeping me addicted and break out of that cycle and get into a drug treatment program. I just realized if I weren’t at Eva’s, I might not have gotten that treatment. It was rocky at first, but now I can look back two years and find no illicit drug use! Thank you, Eva’s!” Add warm bed and fresh start to feature.
