Make a Donation

At Walking Anew Inc., our volunteers and partners know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2017, we have been determined to make an impact on our community. Regardless of the challenge, we believe every individual is created in the image of God.

We see. We hear. We serve.

Become a Volunteer

Our gifts make room for us, and we desire to make room for you. We are looking forward to building partnerships with community collaborators, partners and practitioners who have a heart to serve and help to create a more unified Black and Brown community. We believe in giving back, paying it forward, and empowering our communities of color; therefore, we curate opportunities for all ages.

What we do

Our Services

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Walking Anew Inc. is determined to see, hear and serve those who may otherwise go unnoticed. We aid homeless and working poor communities by hosting meals, providing resources, and delivering provisions to those in need. We do this in partnership with Kitchen Ministries, Ponce Church in Midtown, community volunteers, organizations and local businesses. Learn how you can engage and support this work by getting in touch with our team today.

Intercultural Competence Coaching and Training

When measuring a variety of individual competencies in work, academic and ministry contexts, oftentimes we fail to measure how well one engages across commonalities and differences in culture.  In today’s society, (our workplace, home, church, organizations and communities) we are riddled with individuals who emanate from a variety of cultural backgrounds and experiences, yet most of whom have never considered whether they are culturally intelligent or interculturally competent.

 Cultural intelligence, like academic, leadership, theological and emotional intelligence, requires intentionality and as such, Walking Anew, Inc. invites us to recognize the need for development via assessment and coaching tools.

Developing cultural intelligence not only necessitates time and intentionality, but also encourages a willingness to enter into crucial conversations about oneself and ones beliefs developed over a lifetime.

Barbara D. Jones is a gifted trainer, certified leadership coach and consultant and would count it a privilege to work alongside you and your organization  toward developing intercultural competencies that will promote and enhance productivity individually and corporately.

WOMEN WALKING ANEW ™

Our bodies carry with it the stories and pain of our past. These stories impact how we live today. In cooperation with primarily female providers, including psychologists, counselors and coaches, we direct Black and Brown women towards support and community. We believe we can facilitate progress and so strive to make a difference. Thereby Walking Anew, Inc. we are dedicated to empowering women with the resources needed to manage everyday life. We invite you to learn more about our monthly fellowship and  lend your support. Contact us for more information here.

VOLUNTEER COACHING AND TRAINING

Black and Brown communities have historically hosted well-meaning volunteers who admittedly do not have the skills to effectively engage across cultural differences. Walking Anew, Inc. welcomes volunteers from all backgrounds, but we believe that the necessary cultural competencies must be in place for those who desire to have direct contact with the communities we serve. If you are interested in developing cross-cultural competencies, come, grow, and walk anew. Our qualified administrator of the Intercultural Development Inventory® will aid in equipping you to serve more effectively. Contact us for more details.

Walking Anew is proud to announce we are launching our sister project, Women Walking Anew, an organization dedicated to promoting the self-care of Black and Brown women including mental, physical and spiritual health and well-being. From now until March 31, we are asking our followers, partners, and friends to snap a selfie in front of a mural of a Woman of Color who has inspired you and to tag us as well as hashtag #womenwalkinganew. We also invite you to join us for our inaugural event, the Women Walking Anew Walk, on Saturday March 27TH on the Atlanta Beltline. If you are interested in joining a group of women who are committed to caring for themselves and supporting others’ journeys towards wholeness, recognizing that our destination is the same, even though our paths may vary, we welcome you to walk with us! We will meet in front of Park Tavern (500 10th St NE, Atlanta, GA 30309) near 10th St. NE and Monroe Dr. NE. Free parking on the street. We hope to see you there!
