The supportive services Eva’s Village in Paterson, NJ provides to homeless, addicted mothers and their children have the goal of not only addressing their immediate need for food security and safe shelter, but to guide them as they progress through programs that address long term solutions to poverty and homelessness. For homeless children and children from addictive families, who are arguably the most vulnerable segment of those from disadvantaged backgrounds, the chance to live, study, and play in a safe environment that fosters educational success greatly increases their chances of breaking the cycle of poverty.


Since 1970, Visions and Pathways has been giving a home and hopeful future to abused, neglected, homeless, missing and at-risk youth ages 13-21 . They help them put the pieces back together, build their self-esteem and acquire the skills they need to thrive by providing; food, housing, counseling, education assistance, arts and recreation activities, career and employment counseling, scholarships and financial literacy instruction. To date, Visions and Pathways has helped more than 8,000 youth and their families find their inner strength and peace of mind.
