The mission of Anna’s Place NOLA (formerly Anna's Arts for Kids) is to promote healing and wholeness of body, mind and spirit in the Treme/7th Ward and Greater New Orleans community by offering academic, cultural, and arts enrichment; holistic health care; and healthy lifestyle education. The vision of Anna's Place is that it is a place of peace where children realize their potential and families and the community are nurtured so that poverty and violence no long make their home among us.
WHAT YOU DO
There are three opportunities for service learners at Anna's Place
