To influence awareness, research, resources and dynamic partnerships within the community, nation, and world as we genuinely serve couples hurting from Pregnancy and Infant Loss (PAIL) and fertility challenges.

Our Mission

Anaya’s Project is a 501c3 charitable nonprofit organization that spreads hope, encouragement, and love to families who have experienced the indescribable pain of losing a baby prematurely. We also provide support and resources to couples who are experiencing fertility issues.


"Anaya was here for a moment but her foot prints are forever imprinted our hearts and minds." - Sanita Mitchell

Our Story

On April 26, 2010, founders Antonio and Sanita Mitchell lost their precious little girl Anaya Simone at 28 weeks of pregnancy. Despite their heartache, it was their faith in God that aided them to overcome their pain and begin a new life focused on inspiring and helping couples in need.

Antonio and Sanita understand what it feels like to handle grief alone, especially when it appears others have moved on with their lives. They understand the desire to try again, yet struggle with infertility and undergo constant testing to remedy the issue. Because they have this understanding, they were moved by the Holy Spirit to launch Anaya’s Project.

Anaya’s name means “to guard or protect,” which captures the very essence of our purpose in protecting grieving couples and those facing infertility issues. It is our goal to provide sincere love, hope, and encouragement to couples in need so none of them ever feel alone.
