“…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 12 formerly homeless men and women with chronic mental illness and/or disability. Our clients move from years of living on the streets or in shelters to living on their own in safety and with dignity in apartments they can call home.
Our name honors the iconic figure in Jewish history, who along with millions of others, perished or were made homeless during the Holocaust.
We are an all-volunteer, board-led organization with no paid staff, 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.
