At Anne's Place, we inspire people to enact tangible change in the lives of individuals experiencing homelessness within our community.

We raise awareness about homelessness and provide long-term supportive housing to people in our community who without our assistance would be homeless.

Anne’s Place is a Washington, DC-based independent non-profit organization dedicated to providing permanent supportive housing to some of the city’s most vulnerable individuals.

Welcome to Anne's Place

(Formerly known as Anne Frank House, Inc.)

Our mission is to transition formerly homeless people into comfortable, fully furnished single-occupancy apartments located in Northwest DC. These residences are conveniently situated near grocery shopping and public transportation. Residents contribute an average of 25% of their income toward rent and case management support, with Anne’s Place covering the remaining costs.

Join us in our commitment to provide comfort, caring and community in Washington DC. Together, we can make a lasting difference.

A Note on Renaming

Until 2024, Anne’s Place was known as Anne Frank House DC. Founded in 1987 by a dedicated group of volunteers inspired by Anne Frank's resilience, the Anne Frank House was initially a group home for women who were sheltered by others. However, over time the name caused confusion with the museum of the same name in Amsterdam, so our Board of Directors chose a new name, still related to Anne Frank, but discernibly unique.

On March 1, 2024, we transitioned to Anne’s Place, still fueled by Anne Frank’s unwavering spirit. Join us in our mission to provide long-term, supportive housing to Washington, DC’s most vulnerable individuals.

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

-Anne Frank
