Frequently Asked Questions

Does DASH guarantee housing placement?

Does DASH guarantee housing placement?

No, DASH doesn’t place people in housing. We provide information and housing counseling at the housing resource clinic and assist people in accessing services. Our main purpose is to equip survivors with knowledge of possible options available to them within the DMV.

What documentation do I need to bring to the Housing Resource Clinic?

What documentation do I need to bring to the Housing Resource Clinic?

DASH does not require any documentation when providing services at HRC. We take the word of the survivor from their identity to their story.

Documentation is strongly suggested when requesting Survivor Resilience Funds (SRF) as it adds to your self advocacy.  SRF applications will only be accepted if funds are available.

Does coming to HRC serve as intake into Cornerstone?

Does coming to HRC serve as intake into Cornerstone?

No, the Housing Resource Center serves as an entry point if we have an available apartment that fits the family size of the survivor. At that time, we will complete a referral form at HRC and send it to our Director of Programs. Our director of programs will then contact the survivor to start the intake process.

We are community based with varying schedules, which means we are not by the phone at any given time on any given weekday. The best way to reach us is via email. If you do not have internet or computer access and it is easier to call, leave a clear voicemail and we will get back to you in 24-48 hours. We are available on Wednesdays in person at our housing clinics. We see the last person at 3:30pm.
