Our History: A Tribute to Eva R. Poland

mrs eva
Her favorite saying was, "Troubles don't last always; joy comes in the morning."

This ministry of service is dedicated to my mother.

It did not matter if you were family, friends or even a stranger who needed help, our mother always welcomed people into our home. My mother enjoyed cooking and baking. Around our kitchen table, she would often share food and desserts along with encouragement and support to people.

Eva’s Closet is dedicated to the remembrance of my mother who made a difference in the lives of the people in our hometown community.

She was fondly called “Mrs. Eva” by her friends and neighbors with whom she shared her faith, encouragement, and empowering spirit as well as her tangible resources with those in need.

One of her beliefs was to be prepared for whenever opportunity knocks at your door.

As a result of observing my mother’s dedication and love for helping others to grow personally and spiritually, I developed a passion for working in the social services profession and building a nonprofit network to assist with their personal growth, life skills, spirituality, and professional endeavors.

Please explore the rest of our website to learn more about how we honor Mrs. Eva through our work in the community. Thank you for stopping by.

CEO, Eva's Closet

Help us continue Mrs. Eva's legacy.

Mrs. Eva was committed to helping those in need by not only meeting their physical needs, but their emotional and spiritual needs as well.

At Eva’s Closet, we strive to meet those same needs in our community by focusing on education and empowerment for single mothers, low-income families, and the underprivileged in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

You can support us in one of two ways, either by donating or volunteering. Donations of any amount are welcome and fully tax-deductible. If you’d like to get directly involved, please contact us about volunteering—we’re always looking for assistance with projects.
