“By losing them, we were also losing our strength and future.”

– Eva Maud Smith, Founder (1923-1993)

Eva Maud Smith (1923-1993) was a woman of action. In 1956 at the age of 33, she immigrated to Canada from Jamaica as a domestic worker. Nothing was easy about her first years in Canada, but it wasn’t long before Eva Smith became a Toronto community leader and a school outreach worker.

Eva shed light on hidden youth homelessness, showing decision-makers the scope of the problem and rallying supporters to do something about it. She demonstrated that adult shelters were missing the specialized supports youth needed to avoid chronic homelessness in the long term.

In 1989, through Eva Smith’s trailblazing work the North York Emergency Home for Youth was founded. Five years later, the original emergency shelter and the first youth-focused shelter in North York, Toronto, Eva’s Place, was opened for homeless youth.
Although Eva Smith passed away in 1993, her spirit has lived on.

“When my family emigrated to Canada in the 60’s and 70’s, the visionary Eva Smith was already hard at work in the trenches pushing government to improve opportunities for immigrating families and struggling young people. Though I didn’t physically meet Eva, I have certainly benefited from her insights and relentless efforts.

I am grateful and proud to be inspired by the late Eva Maud Smith today, committing my own creativity, connectivity and tenacity to support Eva’s, and the disproportionately diverse, homeless young people the organization serves.”
