Thank you for your continued support of the work of Holistic Life Foundation, Incorporated. Our unique programming offers a dedicated approach to fostering social, emotional, environmental, and physical improvements in the lives of children, adults, and families. Through a comprehensive approach that incorporates yoga and mindfulness instruction, workforce development, teacher training, outreach, and education, our programs are making a direct impact on underserved populations across the country, and throughout the world.
2015 was a year of significant growth for HLF. Our staff, which increased from 22 to 27, served approximately 3500 children in the Baltimore community on a weekly basis. Our ability to provide thousands of children with training in yoga, mindfulness, and emotional self-regulation encourages community-wide peace. In turn, these children teach what they have learned to their parents, siblings, neighbors, and friends. HLF is building a movement and we thank our generous supporters in Baltimore and beyond.
Our significant 2015 highlights include:
In 2015 we also celebrated the accomplishments of our Workforce Development participants. Oba Joyner and JamarPeete, graduates of our original Holistic Me class, won the Outstanding New Health and Wellness Program award from the state of Virginia for their work in teaching HLF’s approach to mindfulness at the Boys and Girls Club in Charlottesville. Additionally, Jerron Wallace, HLF graduate and instructor, presented before an audience at the United Nations International Day of Peace in New York. These accomplishments, as well as the daily efforts of each of our Workforce Development participants, help to sustain our efforts. As we look back on 2015 and ahead to 2016, we feel confident in HLF’s bright future.
We thank all of the foundations and private donors whose generosity and commitment to the HLF mission enables us to continue to share love, light, and peace.
