Originally formed in 2003, The ATHENA Society of Burleson is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose membership consists of women in the Burleson area who have received the ATHENA Leadership Award. What started as individual women being recognized for their community service and leadership has grown into an organization that is well respected by our community in being a leader in philanthropy and hard work.
Our joint passion is to assist Johnson County cancer patients, their families and caregivers with the special needs they have. There are services other than medical treatment that can provide some comfort and peace of mind to patients as they battle cancer. The ATHENA Society of Burleson works cooperatively with The Careity Foundation to administer these programs for uninsured and underinsured residents.
