Our after-school, Saturday and Summer Camp programs provide youth ages 5-14 with academic enrichment, experiences and education in the arts, healthy lifestyle and social development education. Most of our youth come from financially disadvangtaged familes and attend poor/failing schools....85% of our kids have a reading level below their school grade level -- 52% of those are two years or more behind! We use an arts-integrated curriculum and STEAM programs to provide academic enhancement. We partner with Sylvan Learning, LLC to improve reading levels; Electric Girls, NOLA Code and the Microsoft Store for STEM classes; the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO) to offer lessons on 8 different instruments; and Loyola University Music Therapy Department for music thereapy. Students attend field trips through partnerships with the Loyola University Biology Department and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Dance, choral and instrumental performances at fairs, the Microsoft Store, and LPO events builds self-esteem, public speaking and leadership skills. We include health, nutrition, gardening, yoga and morals/ethics classes. Our staff consists of a few contract local artists and many volunteers, individuals and students from local universities (Tulane, Loyola, SUNO, and Delgado).

Health outreach services are available to the community including blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, Hepatitis C testing, simple doctor visits, health education, medicaid application assistance and referrals. A diabetes support group meets monthly and community health education programs are offered.

Our Food Pantry provides short-term assistance to families in emergency financial situations or suffering from severe illness in the form of 2 bags of groceries per month.
My child's grades have improved so much working with the tutoring Anna's Place NOLA is providing. Thank you!

You've provided the male role model my grandson needed in his life.

Ya'll saved my life -- I had no idea how sick I was when I came to your clinic.
