About Eva's Village
Founded as a soup kitchen in 1982, Eva’s Village began by serving 30 meals a day to feed the hungry in Paterson; it now serves more than 500,000 meals annually. In response to the related issues of poverty, addiction, mental illness and homelessness, programs and services were added to the original soup kitchen to address these problems in the community. Today, Eva’s Village offers a range of integrated programs to help those in need overcome obstacles in order to move toward stability and independence.   

For more than three decades, it has provided care and support for thousands of people each year who are struggling with poverty, hunger, homelessness, and addiction. Eva’s offers a range of integrated programs and supportive services providing food, shelter and housing, medical care, mental health, and addiction treatment, recovery support, childcare and education, and job training. The Culinary School at Eva’s Village opened in 2014.
