PCA recently had the chance to put the phrase, “Love Thy Neighbor” to action when we were approached by The Liberty Village Business Improvement Area to help furnish a resource lab run by Eva’s Initiative. Eva’s is a charitable organization that aims to provide shelter, training and counseling to homeless and at risk youth. They offer a wide range of innovative programs and services to help youth reach their potential and lead productive, self-sufficient and healthy lives.
Eva has been working closely with Telus to help fund raise and support their initiatives and we were more than happy to help as well. PCA donated furniture to their facility. Our installers passed by Eva’s and snapped this great pic.
The extent to which Eva's creates a support system for these individuals is truly astounding! With the help of business, labour and community partners, Eva's provides housing for 50 youth, aged 16 to 24, for up to a full year. Since 2002, they have helped up to 160 youths each year (aged 16-29) participate in its employment and pre- apprenticeship programs – Amazing!
We love working with Eva's and encourage the participation of our clients to reach out and help such a great cause!

In keeping with the spirit of giving, we have lent our financial support to Sky’s The Limit – a charitable organization whose mission is to provide Canadian youth with refurbished laptops. The majority of STL recipients are under-resourced youth in grades 9 to 12 and we wanted to help change some lives by purchasing laptops for them.
Every year STL receives upwards of 1000 requests for personal computers by youth in need across Canada. When they receive a computer from STL, their entire sphere of influence benefits. Younger siblings have the opportunity to practice their skills from an early age. Parents have a chance to develop their skills, do research, or type a resume. Relatives and friends also can have the opportunity to have access to the computer. “I will use my computer to research homework assignments for me and my little brother. To learn more about Canada and other countries. My teacher and mom can email each other about my progress in class.” – STL recipient
