Helping Homeless Mothers And Children In Need
Eva's Village Hope Residence for Mothers with Children reinvents the concept of the homeless shelter for mothers and children in New Jersey.
Mothers and their children who are struggling with homelessness need far more than just temporary shelter; they need a wide range of support services to address their mental and physical health. The mothers may need substance abuse treatment, psychological counseling, childcare, and assistance with job training and placement. The children need to feel safe and secure, and they need exercise, recreation and playtime, as well as educational support.
Eva's Village Hope Residence helps mothers and children in need by providing therapeutic support services with the goal of improving overall their emotional and behavioral well-being. This helps the mother’s progression towards increased financial stability and independence for herself and her family.
At Eva's Village, we provide a continuum of care to ensure that mothers and children have access to all of the tools they need to gain independence and heal as a family. Mothers living in our Hope Residence receive care in our Medical and Dental Clinic, job training through our Workforce Development, and supportive services through our Recovery Center and Outpatient Programs; and their children are cared for through our Childcare and Education program, which include infant and toddler care, an after-school program, and a summer program.
