Our Story

Established in 2018, The Amish Heritage Foundation (AHF) is the first organization in 300+ years of history to advocate for Amish people without a religious price tag.

AHF is a secular nonprofit that empowers those inside and outside the Amish Church through education, and helps the public become informed about the facts of Amish culture and religion.

 

Where We Stand

 

AHF is LGBTQ+ affirming and stands in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter.

Our Mission & Approach

The Amish Heritage Foundation is a history-making non-profit committed to 1) empowering Amish women and children through education so they can choose their futures, and 2) raising awareness about the crises hidden in Amish society.

We provide educational programs and services to Amish members and culturally competent training to social workers, law enforcement, organizations, and academics who wish to make a difference for an Amish child or woman’s future. We also offer internships to build cross-cultural understanding.

We envision that one day education will be a federal right for all American and indigenous children, and Amish children will have the right to learn beyond the 8th grade and the right to learn about science, technology, engineering, math (STEM), and the arts.

Message from the Founder

Thank you for finding us!

When I was around 13 years old, I told myself that if I made it after my escape, I’d help the ones left behind. The Amish Heritage Foundation is the manifestation of that childhood vow.

I wanted to create an underground railroad, like Harriet Tubman did.

Harriet was my first female role model. What she did for enslaved people inspired me to believe in myself and do whatever it took to set myself free, too.

Like Harriet, I can’t do the work I envision without your help. Thank you for joining the fight to create a safer world for women and children––and by extension, all beings.
