The Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation was established on June 28, 2007, as an independent and nonprofit association with the aim of helping citizens, particularly, refugees and internally displaced persons, to practically address their living and existential problems, with special emphasis on addressing their housing problems.

The foundation was established by Ana and Vlade Divac, as a continuation of their twenty years of humanitarian work, which began in the United States within the Humanitarian Organization Divac (HOD). In the past 8 years, the Organization has focused its support primarily on refugees and internally displaced persons (on addressing their housing problems), the improvement of conditions for raising children and youth, the development of philanthropy and social entrepreneurship. 

Thanks to the support of 650,000 individuals, 670 companies and 82 organizations, the Foundation has raised 10 million US dollars to-date and secured assistance for 300,000 people.
