Eva's Village - About Us

Eva's Village breaks the cycle of poverty and addiction through our unique and integrated approach. Our interconnected community of recovery and support services, located on a 3-block campus in Paterson, NJ, helps thousands of men, women, and children each year by addressing basic needs of ​food and shelter​, as well as complex issues around addiction, mental illness, and chronic homelessness.

Our model is unique. Our results are real. Our success is measured in lives - renewed, restored, and reborn.

Rose's Story

Just two years ago, Rose was homeless. She had lost custody of her two children and was deep in the throes of a heroin addiction . . . but the strength of her unbreakable bond with her kids led her to Eva’s Village, where she received the support she needed to start her recovery. Listen to her story. . .

It's not just about picking you up and rehabilitating you, it's but also it's given you a path. . . .
