To promote healing and wholeness of body, mind and spirit in the Tremé/7th Ward and Greater New Orleans community by offering academic, cultural, and arts enrichment; holistic health care; and healthy lifestyle education.
Anna’s Place NOLA is a place of peace where children realize their potential and families and the community are nurtured so that poverty and violence no longer make their home among us.
WHO WE SERVE
Anna’s Place NOLA seeks to serve those in our community — a community rife with violence (as a means of resolving conflict and as retribution slayings), drug dealing, and prostitution, and contains families of low socio- economic means. The children have been born into a city, a neighborhood and a culture that devalues them. Academic success is hindered by schools that under-serve their community. Life expectancy is 20 years lower than other parts of New Orleans; adults have low health literacy, and many are uninsured or otherwise medically under-served.
