Toronto-based Eva’s Phoenix has been profiled in today's edition of The Globe and Mail. Margaret Wente, in an editorial titled “Working hard for your money,” gave praise to the organization for being one of the few charities able to provide effective help to homeless youth.

The Eva’s Phoenix program not only gets youth off the streets, but provides vocational and life skills. The Phoenix Print Shop, associated with the program, trains youth for the graphic arts field and is supported by numerous companies in the industry. The program was founded in 2000. Eva’s Phoenix provides housing for 50 youth, aged 16 to 24 years, for up to a full year, and since 2002 has also allowed up to 160 youth each year, aged 16 to 29 years, to participate in its employment and pre-apprenticeship programs. 

The Eva’s Initiatives program has been named as one of the top 33 charities of the year by Charity Intelligence, a watchdog organization which promotes transparency in how charity funding is spent.
