Emergency Overnight Shelter for Men and women
Eva's Village Emergency Overnight Shelter for Men, in the Sister Cathy Center at 389 Main Street, provides 40 beds for homeless men 18 years of age and older. Eva's Village Emergency Overnight Shelter for Women, at 31 Jackson Street, provides 36 emergency shelter beds for homeless single women 18 years of age or older.
|Eva's Village provides shelter to homeless men, homeless women and to mothers and children at Hope Residence, also on Eva's campus in Paterson, NJ.
The shelters are filled to capacity during most of the year. The homeless men and homeless women in these programs often suffer from mental illness, substance abuse and limited resources. At Eva's Village we provide the homeless with the basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing. To address the underlying problems associated with homelessness we introduce the clients to services available at Eva's and in the community.
Transitional Apartments for Mothers and Children
Eva's Transitional Apartments for Mothers and Children, at 17 Jackson Street, offers 6 two-bedroom apartments for families who are ready to leave the Hope Residence for Mothers and Children but need additional time and resources to move into their own apartment. They can stay for up to six months while they prepare for a more permanent and stable home environment.
Transitional Housing for men
Eva's Transitional Housing for Men at 22 Jackson Street provides affordable housing for 10 formerly homeless men who have graduated from Eva's Halfway House for Men but can benefit from continued support services to sustain their new self-sufficiency. Residents share household responsibilities. They must have a regular source of income to cover the nominal monthly rent obligation, and must also agree to random alcohol/drug testing, to attend three NA/AA meetings per week and a monthly house meeting.
Between 2008 and 2010, the number of homeless families in New Jersey increased by 40.1%. We provide short-term emergency overnight shelter for men, woman & families to help them get back on their feet.
