The Annette P. White Legacy Foundation is…

making the transition into adulthood smoothe, safe & solid.


The Annette P. White Legacy Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization based in the greater Cleveland area of Ohio. Our purpose is to provide education and practice of the basic life skills needed to help youth and adults transition into independent living with confidence.

Annette P. White is the co-founder, Lead Coach, and CFO. She worked in Telecommunications for 37 years employed by Ohio Bell, Southwestern Bell, and A T &T Communications.  Upon her early retirement she set out to enjoy life but also realized that her skills were still needed. She moved back to her hometown of Cleveland to help encourage, give, train, and serve others. Her heart’s desire to leave a legacy for her family and others in the community led to the incorporation of the Legacy Foundation.

Soneakqua J. White, M.A.,LPC is the co-founder, Mental Wellness Strategist, and CEO. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor, in the state of Texas, and the owner of cathARTic Coaching & Consulting in Ohio. With a passion for all things mental health, Soneakqua’s charge is to create programming and seek funding to ensure the education and skills-based activities are implemented. She believes everyone should have the opportunities she’s had to learn and thrive in every area of life!



— We Educate

Because our communities need healthy individuals, families, and organizations to power them, we teach group life skills as well as social and emotional learning.


— We Train

After participants complete our courses they become eligible to become coaches in our programs. We believe in a train-the-trainer model in our teaching and coaching approaches.


— We Partner

We partner with companies in the community as well as nationwide to provide mental health education and financial literacy.


Before You G.R.O.W. Up

The purpose of this program is to provide an age-appropriate tool to assist in socially and emotionally preparing our children to graduate ready to occupy the world. This curriculum is created based on Ohio’s approved K-12 Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) standards.

Money 101

Five Rings Financial is a company the foundation partners with to educate our community on how money works. With information like this, our participants do not have to be a part of the ongoing poverty crisis that plagues Cleveland.
