“…most of all, I long for a home of my own….”
(Anne Frank diary entry, July 23, 1943)
Anne Frank House in Washington, DC is an independent non-profit organization that provides long-term supportive housing to 11 formerly homeless men and women.
Comfort. Anne Frank House clients move from living on the streets or in shelters to living on their own in comfortable and fully furnished single-occupancy apartments. These apartments, all located in Ward 3 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 establish caring, one-to-one relationships with clients. They call and visit clients, help them with errands or meeting personal needs and deliver holiday meals. Most important, volunteers help clients build a sense of security, self-reliance and belonging in the community.
In 2022, after 35 years of being an all-volunteer organization with no paid staff, we hired our first executive director with a goal of expanding the number of people we serve.
Please join with us to end homelessness in Washington DC.
