Our Mission

Anne Frank House is an independent, nonprofit (501)(c)(3) organization affiliated with the Adas Israel Congregation of Washington, DC.  We combat homelessness by providing permanent housing and social services support so our clients can live in their own apartments and remain mentally stable and self-reliant as part of the larger community.

Comfort. Anne Frank House clients move from living on the edge in danger and degradation to living on their own in comfortable and fully furnished single-occupancy apartments. These apartments, all located in Wards 3 and 4 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.
