"Bring me all of your dreams,
You dreamers,
Bring me all of your
Heart melodies

That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world."

- Langston Hughes

Our Work

Our programming is designed to be:  holistic, family centered, culturally based, social justice and equity driven and recognizes  that all can and should succeed. We celebrate heritage and culture, honor the intrinsic brilliance and creativity of our constituents and help build their  voice and power.

Hannah believes that this approach leads not only to individual success, but collectively creates a community culture of achievement.

Our Junior Servant Leaders

"Every child-no matter their stripe or stature-deserves equal access to a quality education. That's what we say, what we believe, and what's required under the law…. Depriving a child of a fair chance to learn is wicked, it's warped, it's morally bankrupt, and it's corrupt. Your skin color or zip code should not determine winners and losers."

-California State Attorney General Becerra

Passion, commitment, confrontation.  The Hannah Project always bears witness to the needs of the underserved and forgotten children in this community.  Blessings for all the future generations who will benefit from your work.


-Christina Orth

My heart cannot contain the joy and excitement created by the return of the Hannah Project. There has been a tremendous void in the community left by the exit of the Hannah Project. Marin City is vitalized [ now that you are back]! The sky is the limit….


My hope is that the Hannah Project continues to help children realize their dreams and reach their potential. Hannah has made a huge impact in not only reframing students belief that a higher education was possible, but for people in the community as well. You are a blessing.


Congratulations on your homecoming to your community…May your new home be a lighthouse for safety, trust, education, culture, communication, joy, equity, achievements - a path to leadership and positive change. Thank you for your commitment to our community and our future. 

-Lori Frugoli, District Attorney
