I am absolutely thrilled to announce that Anayat House has reached an exciting milestone – we are celebrating our 30th anniversary! 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. To commemorate this momentous occasion, we will be hosting an Open House on Thursday, July 18 from 11:30 – 1:00. We would be honored if you would join us in celebrating this special occasion. Finally, on behalf of the Board of Directors and those we serve, I want to thank everyone for the continued support. Without the faithful donors and supporters, none of this would have been possible. I am confident that with your continued support, we will continue to reach even greater success in the years to come.
