“…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 that provides permanent housing and social services support to 11 formerly homeless men and women with chronic mental illness. Our clients move from living on the streets in danger and degradation to living on their own in comfortable 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.
