Fihankra Place is a minority owned social
service organization which has been in operation since 1998.
Our name originates from Adinkra symbolism where symbols
provide a visual representation of social thought relating
to the history, philosophy and religious beliefs of the Akan
peoples of Ghana and Cote'Ivorie. The symbol "Fihankra"
represents enclosed house of security, safety, brotherhood

Fihankra Place, Inc. Whole Life Wellness
Center is dedicated to providing Mental
Health and clinical support and services to underserved
communities in Washington DC. It is Fihankra’s philosophy
and mission to restore families to their traditional
greatness and closeness by rebuilding trusting relationships
and family values.
Since its conception Fihankra has
established and maintained resources to provide our youth
with the tools necessary for successful transition into a
self sufficient, adult lifestyle.
The mission of Fihankra Places' Supervised
Independent Living is to assist young people toward
independence. Young people face a complex world
where broken homes, low structure and negative
influences steer their decisions.
Fihankra's ability to anticipate the needs of youth
led them to establish the Supervised Independent
Living Program with 28 adolescent males and 17
females in September 1998.
