Our foundation fueled by Arman’s love and legacy is focused on bringing critical technology resources and skills to at-risk youth in our local communities through 3 key programs:
ARMAN’S HOPE JAR
This program is a resource ‘jar’ available to individuals and groups to request funding and support for technology projects that will positively impact youth in our local communities. The concept is simple. Anyone with a spirit of compassion can create a ripple of hope for many. Learn about our Hope Jar projects or submit a project on behalf of your community here.
Through this program, we partner with select organizations that have a similar missions of helping those facing extreme life hardships such as homelessness, poverty and abuse, by providing funding for technology resources and training. It will take a lot of us working together to spark hope for those who need it most, and we are proud of these incredible partners. Learn more here.
This program provides technology skills training and development, mentoring and job opportunities for at-risk youth to put them on a positive life path. During COVID19, we recommend leveraging these free self-guided resources to help youth develop basic technology skills.
We plan to offer a dedicated technology job training program in Q3 2020. Please send us an email to learn more.

To accomplish this objective, AnnieCannons employs a phased educational strategy that empowers its students to learn technology skills, apply these skills in student-led development projects, and earn incomes as subcontractors to clients that AnnieCannons sources and manages.
The supportive services Eva’s Village in Paterson, NJ provides to homeless, addicted mothers and their children have the goal of not only addressing their immediate need for food security and safe shelter, but to guide them as they progress through programs that address long term solutions to poverty and homelessness. For homeless children and children from addictive families, who are arguably the most vulnerable segment of those from disadvantaged backgrounds, the chance to live, study, and play in a safe environment that fosters educational success greatly increases their chances of breaking the cycle of poverty.
