There are several different reasons why a person can become homeless.  Perhaps you are fleeing a violent relationship, or removing yourself from a residence to ensure your safety, or your children’s safety.   Perhaps you are being evicted because you can’t pay your rent because your job has been downsized; you have had a serious health issue, or are still waiting for an entitlement payment such as social security or disability.  Perhaps your parents have thrown you out of the house, because you have made bad choices or they don’t like the friends you are hanging out with.

We know that becoming homeless is a growing problem in our community.  We also know the largest population of homeless, are children.  We know that sometimes, everyone needs a second chance and a little help. If you are struggling, are in need of shelter, and don’t know where to go for help, please call us!

Emergency Residential Services//

​​Eva's Place offers emergency residential services

for Sanilac County women and children who are homeless. We also provide for brief emergency shelter for men at other locations. 

At Eva's Place we offer a variety of services

and help, but you have to do the work for yourself. You are responsible for yourself, you need to take control of yourself, make your own choices, and you must want and take the necessary steps for change. In the end, when you accomplish your goal, these steps help you realize your independence, and just how strong you are! 

The case manager and staff will work with you

​to connect with local resources and agencies that may have services to help you become independent. The staff will help you develop a plan of action, they will identify steps you need to take to implement your plan. Sometimes, a plan will come together quickly, other times it will take a while.
