Eva's Phoenix print shop getting new home
TORONTO—Eva's Phoenix, a Toronto shelter and print shop that prepares at-risk youth for jobs in the industry, which was recently named one of Canada's best charities, will have a new home in the future.

Eva's Phoenix is preparing to move from its current location on Ordnance Street after a Toronto council decision to sell to a developer the property that the charity was leasing. Eva's Phoenix, including its print shop, will be moving to a new city-owned heritage building at 505 Richmond St. W. by 2014.




While the city granted $5 million to help retrofit the new location, another $2 to $3 million will be needed, said Maria Crawford, executive director of parent organization Eva's Initiatives. She said the organization is pleased to have secured a new home and that a capital campaign will begin in the new year.

Meanwhile, Charity Intelligence Canada, a non-profit charity research organization, has named Eva's Initiatives one of the country's best charities in 2011.

Eva's Initiatives operates three shelters which house and feed 114 youth aged 16 to 24 nightly, according to the report, which adds that administrative costs account for only 9% of the charity's value.
