Eva’s Village breaks the cycle of poverty and addiction through a unique and integrated approach. Their 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.
