Anne Frank House is an all-volunteer, board-led organization with no paid staff. Our officers and board members, who manage all organizational operations, have a passion for helping the homeless as well as expertise in real estate, social services, and nonprofit management. Many members have served on our board for five years or more, helping to ensure the long-term sustainability of Anne Frank House. They are devoted to ensuring the well-being of our clients and to making sure that more than 90 percent of the funds we raise go directly to helping the people we serve.
