CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY - Fund a Meal Program

Join us for a rewarding experience: groups of 10 employees serve lunch to the homeless/working poor, and your organization sponsors the cost of that day's meals through our Fund-A-Meal Program. This very rewarding, program includes a tour and overview of Eva's antipoverty programs, the lunch service, and photos and positive publicity on Social Media to say thank you for volunteering and for making a donation to Eva's Village. In order to serve more than 500,000 meals each year, Eva's is especially in need of donations to help cover the cost of food.

If your company would like to participate in this CSR Program please email our Manager, Corporate & Foundation Relations: Marie.Caliendo@EvasVillage.org.

INDIVIDUAL VOLUNTEERS

Eva’s Village invites volunteers to see firsthand what a difference we can make together, by serving lunch to the homeless and working poor members of our community. The Community Kitchen at Eva’s Village

Mission Statement

Eva’s Village is a nonprofit, comprehensive social service organization with a mission to provide care and support for people struggling with homelessness, hunger, poverty and addiction.

Description

Our organization was founded in 1982 as a simple soup kitchen to offer homeless neighbors the kindness of a meal shared with dignity. Eva's has progressed to providing help and hope to more than 5,000 people annually through our integrated anti-poverty programs.

To address the complex needs of the population we serve, Eva’s provides a recovery-oriented community of supportive services that starts by addressing the basic human need for food and shelter. Once our clients are sheltered and food secure, we then work to address the root causes of their poverty and identify their best path forward toward stability. To that end, Eva’s provides residential substance use disorder treatment for men, women, parents with children, and opioid-addicted pregnant women; outpatient treatment for substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders, access to meetings and sober living at our Recovery Community Center; peer-to-peer support in hospital emergency rooms with our Opioid Overdose Recovery Program; childcare/education programs for children living in our village; medical and dental care in our Health Clinic; and long-term pathways out of poverty with employment coaching in our Workforce Development Program and career training in The Culinary School at Eva’s Village.

Above all, the dignity and needs of the individual are at the center of everything we do
