Eva's Village Celebrates a Second 4-star Rating from Charity Navigator for Fiscal Responsibility & the Opening of a Recovery Center in NJ

Eva's Village (, a comprehensive New Jersey anti-poverty charity, celebrates a second consecutive 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for fiscal responsibility, and the opening of the only state-funded Recovery Center in New Jersey -- Eva's Village, Paterson, New Jersey

Paterson, NJ (PRWEB) September 4, 2009 -- Eva's Village, (anti-poverty program that "consistently executes its mission in a fiscally responsible way, and outperforms most other charities in America." Only 19% of the charities rated by Charity Navigator received 2 consecutive 4-star ratings. As noted by Ken Berger, President & Chief Executive Officer of Charity Navigator, "this rating has been awarded to Eva's Village because of their sound fiscal management, and demonstrates to the public it is worthy of their trust".

Eva's Village reports that the organization's priority has always been to successfully fund their many anti-poverty programs while keeping administrative costs to a minimum. During their 2007-2008 fiscal year, Eva's Village allocated just 10% of expenses to administrative costs, with the rest going directly to feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, treating the addicted and providing free medical and dental care to the poor. Sister Gloria Perez, Executive Director of Eva's Village says, "Because we run a tight ship, we are able to help more of those in the greatest need, and both private and government funders have confidence that the funding they provide will be utilized with strict accountability".

Due to its sound fiscal management and the success of its recovery programs, Eva's Village has consistently received funding from the New Jersey Department of Addiction Services, and during the last fiscal year was the sole recipient of a grant establishing a New Jersey Recovery Center at Eva's Village. The NJ Recovery Center at Eva's Village is a recovery-oriented sanctuary anchored in the heart of Paterson, NJ, on the four-block Eva's Village community campus. "The NJ Recovery Center at Eva's Village provides a safe place for people seeking recovery, before, during and after treatment, and throughout their ongoing process", says Sister Gloria Perez. The center provides, recovery-related workshops, trainings, support groups, social and recreational events, wellness classes, telephone support and assistance with housing, employment and childcare services. The unique characteristic of the NJ Recovery Center at Eva's Village is that it is primarily peer-driven with those in recovery assisting each other.

The NJ Recovery Center at Eva's Village is holding a grand opening celebration on Thursday, September 10, 2009 from 2:00pm - 5:00pm. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony followed by refreshments and tours. The Eva's Village successful recovery model is based on the premise that there are many roads to recovery, and every individual has the right to choose the road that best meets their own personal preferences, needs and values.

Receiving a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, and being awarded the only Recovery Center grant from the NJ Department of Addiction Services, helps to support the extensive mission of Eva's Village to "feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, treat the addicted and provide free medical and dental care to the poor". However, to maintain its programs and to continue to perform to its highest standards, Eva's Village also needs the continued support of its private, corporate and foundaiton donors.

Donna Marie Fico, Chief Marketing Office at Eva's Village, notes, "We are very grateful to have our sound fiscal management recognized by Charity Navigator, since during this time of economic uncertainty, and as the poor needing our services continues to increase, it is extremely important to inform donors that their contribution to Eva's Village is used with the utmost care and efficiency to help the hungry, homeless, addicted and poor with no healthcare".
