Combating Homelessness

Comfort. Anne Frank House clients move from living on the edge in danger and degradation to living on their own in comfortable and fully furnished single-occupancy apartments. These apartments, all located in Wards 3 and 4 in Northwest DC, are close to shopping and to public transportation. Our clients pay an average of $250 a month or 25% of their monthly income.

Caring. To help clients live independently, Anne Frank House contracts with Friendship Place to provide needed medical, psychological and social support services. Friendship Place is a leading provider of these services to DC’s homeless population.

Community. Anne Frank House’s volunteer liaisons oversee and complement these services by establishing caring one-to-one relationships with clients. They call and visit clients frequently, help them with errands or meeting personal needs, and deliver holiday meals. Most important, volunteers help to build clients’ sense of security, self-reliance and belonging in the community.
