THE ANIKA FOUNDATION
Our goal is to provide programming that supports the TOTAL person. A family's health & wellness is directly linked with their access to
socio-economic opportunities: including quality education, housing, employment and legacy-building. Through our programs, we hope to create access through self-advocacy, providing tools and support while planting seeds to inspire current and future generations to thrive!

WOMEN EMPOWERED- WE! Inspire, Dream, Succeed!
WE! Women Empowered is an economic empowerment program designed to illuminate
pathways to success via homeownership, business ownership and investing.
Workshops and networking events are held throughout the year including financial education, business planning and homeownership classes to help participants jumpstart their goals!
We partner with local small business leaders who serve as Ambassadors, to facilitate classes and workshops and provide mentorship when needed.
Would you like to serve as an Ambassador? Contact us for details!
Texture is a social enterprise program designed to teach technical and soft skills for youth and adults in transition. Initially launched as part of our youth program for children ages 12-18, we’ve now expanded to include classes for adults 18-35. Students learn the arts - including sewing, graphic design, painting, beauty - and the technical skills to cultivate and monetize their hobby-turning it into an additional stream of income!
We organize several healthy living programs designed to reduce health disparities in our community and improve outcomes and life expectancy.
Our annual Pinked Out Party-a breast cancer awareness event,
is dedicated to creating awareness while promoting empowering opportunities
for women of all ages-and their supporters-to uplift and inspire one another!
Due to racial and economic disparities, a vast majority of our fellow citizens are not engaged in policy development and governance although they may be impacted by it. Our goal is to issue a personal invitation to our constituents, helping them navigate the community and political landscape - in their neighborhoods and the national scene. We’ve launched a non-partisan voter engagement program that includes our Power In Participation program that teaches basic civic engagement, providing guidance on how to find their voice and engage! Through these efforts we develop fresh voices and future leaders to step up and step in!
