Anna’s Place NOLA

In 2009, Anna’s Place NOLA (originally called Anna’s Arts for Kids) was founded by Darryl Durham to offer a range of arts-based activities for youth. At the request of parents, academic support was added to the program. As youth in our program aged, D.A.W.N. (Developing Adolescents for Workforce Navigation) was developed to support college entrance and basic job skills.

The goal of Anna’s Place NOLA is to address and meet the evolving needs of the Tremé community.
