Eva’s Health and Wellness program provides youth experiencing homeless with in-house health care, crisis supports and comprehensive case management that focuses on addressing their immediate health needs and promoting wellness. Youth access medical and dental care, mental health counselling, substance use supports, reconnect with family and make vital connections to community-based health services.
In the program, young people have the opportunity to engage in many health and wellness activities (i.e. self-care, sexual health, mindfulness, healthy eating, yoga, cooking workshops and more). They develop a personal action plan to help them reach their goals. Health and wellness is a crucial part of their plan because it supports their other goals, such as continuing their education, finding employment, finding housing, and becoming more physically active.
We know that young people are the experts of their lives. They are interested in being healthy and determining the path that supports their physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and well-being. That is why our Health and Wellness program is central to our vision: for young people to become empowered to make the vital connections they need to be healthy and safe.
