Sky's the Limit Album > Patrick Cassidy & Assoc. donate 2 laptops to Eva's Initiatives!
Eva’s Phoenix houses homeless youth and youth coming from unsafe or unstable housing situations.

The physical environment of Eva’s Phoenix is comprised of ten town house units, and approximately five youth live in each house. Each youth has their own bedroom, and is responsible for sharing common living areas with their housemates. The goal of the Housing Program is to assist youth in developing the skills that they need so they can live independently.

The physical layout of Eva’s Phoenix provides youth the opportunity to “practice” independent shared living. Each youth is expected to maintain their own environment, including cleaning and cooking chores, as well as cohesive relationships with their housemates. Housing counselors offer support and guidance to youth so that they may learn the required skills such as cleaning, cooking and shopping as well as the necessary conflict management and communication skills.

The physical layout of Phoenix is integral to the philosophy of the program as it allows for privacy and a degree of independence so that youth may practice what they learn.

STL thanks Patrick Cassidy & Associates for their generous donation!
