In 2020, the DANK Haus Board of Directors adopted set of core values and redefined our vision statement that will shape the work in the years to come.

The core values and vision statement come to life in our exhibits, classes, programs and events. But there is so much more we can do to gather friends, help our neighbors and move towards a bright future.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Executive Director, Monica Jirak, monica@dankhaus.com.




This is the place for gathering and connecting, across generations, in settings both formal and informal

Comfort and "guest experience" is foundational

All are welcome.

Profoundly committed to our connecting with each other, our guests and our neighbors

Intentional about the energy in our classrooms, the draw of our exhibits, the vision of our donors, and the smile in the hall, as a means of engagement.



Reflecting the Germany of our past, present and future; understanding that language is the key to understanding our culture; celebrating our rich traditions

Embracing a wide spectrum of ideas, generations, offerings, solutions, programs, reflecting the rich diversity of our community.
