Thirty years ago, Mimi Daniali, started Anayat House with a heart full of compassion and a lot of hard work. Mimi took out a second mortgage on her home here in Beaumont to purchase a house for hope for those enduring a medical crisis on McFaddin Street. The house was 1,694 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The suggested donation per room per night was $10. And for 20 years, this house provided much comfort to an abundance of families. As the need to house more families became apparent, a new house was built on N. 14th Street. Ten years ago, 2014, the doors to the new Anayat House opened. The new house is 5,334 square feet. There are 6 guest rooms each have a private bathroom – no sharing. In addition, the house has a large kitchen, dining room, living room, library with computer station and a laundry room. The suggested donation is $20 per room per night. However, no one is turned away if they are not financially able. From the beginning, the mission has always been to provide affordable accommodations in a safe and restful family setting to those using local medical facilities. And for 30 years, I am very proud to announce that Anayat House has served over 3,100 families during their time of need.
