Amy Winehouse’s London Home to Become Headquarters For Amy Winehouse Foundation
Amy Winehouse's memory will continue to be strong and powerful for many years after her tragic death, as her London home will soon become the official headquarters of the new Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Winehouse was found dead on July 23 in her home in Camden, North London, and according to sources close to the late singer, it simply "makes sense" for her former $4 million property to become the hub of the foundation.
Winehouse's father, Mitch, told Us Weekly last month that he would be starting a foundation in his daughter's memory to honor her legacy for many years. "Something to help the things she loved -- children, horses -- but also to help those struggling with substance abuse," he said. "In this country, if you cannot afford a private rehabilitation clinic, there is a two year waiting list for help. We are trying to change that."
Mitch has also been reaching out to the singer's mourning fans by giving them articles of clothing that belonged to his 27-year-old daughter, as something to hold close and remember her by.
The Amy Winehouse Foundation mission statement is expected to be announced formally on September 14, which would have been Winehouse's 28th birthday.
