In Awe Foundation is a US Registered 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. In Awe Foundation’s mission is to encourage, engage, and empower individuals affected by abuse and/or addiction to re-build their lives by the implementation of coaching techniques that will inspire action within surrounding communities and become catalysts for change in a multi-cultural society.
The foundation was founded in 2011 to help those individuals who have been affected by abuse or addiction. The foundation does this by providing “Enthusiasm in Action through coaching”. This method of coaching works in a one-on-one or intimate group setting. To contact In Awe Foundation for more information, call (973) 440-8427 or e-mail Info@InAweFoundation.org.
In Awe Foundation’s coaches and clients work together, to establish accountability on an on-going basis. This relationship is meant to enforce and inspire actions that will build confidence and help clients to live purposeful lives.

Founder and CEO of In Awe Foundation, Meena Singh was awarded the “Woman of Outstanding Leadership in Personal Development” by the International Women’s Leadership Association in May 2013. Meena Singh created In Awe Foundation after her own personal struggles with abuse and addiction.

In Awe Foundation has grown greatly since its founding in 2011. In 2011 the foundation was officially incorporated, and ready to start carrying out its mission. In 2012 the foundation began acquiring clients and coaches who would work with the foundation and help it spread its message. By the time 2013 ended, In Awe Foundation held 16 workshops that were at no cost to the surrounding community. The work done by the foundation came full circle with the help of clients and coaches who provided a solution to obesity through “Take Shape for Life”. Take Shape for Life is a separate organization that focuses on the 70% of the people in the United States that are obese or overweight. In Awe Foundation works to stress the fact that food can be an addiction just as serious as alcohol. Thus far in 2014 In Awe foundation has acquired interns to move the foundation’s mission forward through the development of larger events, education and awareness.
In Awe Foundation is looking to create a circle of love and support for its clients, and for all those who have been affected by abuse and addiction. In the upcoming years the foundation hopes to gain support from the community as well as the local, state, and federal governments. Meena Singh breaks down the goals and vision of the foundation over the next ten years. In terms of short- term goals, the foundation is looking to raise $25,000 by October of 2014 and $50,000 dollars by April of 2015. Right now there is a need for funding, in order for the
foundation to grow and acquire more resources to help its clients and its community. The money that is raised will be used to launch a grant writing project to gain local, state and federal government agency financing. This financing is crucial, because it will allow the foundation to launch the next chapter of its work.
Over the next three years In Awe Foundation is looking to partner with colleges and local universities as well as continue providing workshops for addiction awareness. The foundation will also be looking to hold a forum and conference in collaboration with other non-profit organizations and corporations. This partnership will create sponsorships, a space and workers. Meena Singh also stresses the need for an office space to be donated to the foundation in the upcoming years. The office will allow the foundation to organize better and launch its Anger Management groups.
Right now the foundation is being run solely by volunteers. Once an office space is acquired, In Awe Foundation can work to gain employees and funding for their program “Transition to Recovery”. This program will work to reduce the relapse rate and sustain longer period of sobriety, which will ultimately allow the individual afflicted by abuse or addiction to be transitioned into their respective recovery program.
Ultimately the vision of the foundation and of Meena Singh is to have a physical facility known as a “Coaching Center”. The Coaching Centers will provide residents for 18 months with a conglomerate of services. Services will include legal, medical, technology, life skills and coaching which compliments counseling. The main difference between coaching and counseling is that coaching inspires actions.
The long term vision for In Awe Foundation is to build these coaching centers worldwide, so that addictions and abuse can be addressed on a global basis.
The Foundation also provides a weekly internet radio show through the Hunterdon Chamber Radio every Tuesday from 1pm to 2pm. The radio show “Speak Up and Step Out” brings inspiration through conversation. Each week Meena Singh conducts an interview with an influential community member. Each week “Speak Up and Step Out” reaches over 6,000 listeners. To listen to “Speak up and Step Out,” visit the link below http://www.inawefoundation.org/step-up-and-speak-out-weekly-radio-show/.
