“…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.
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.
