Donate to DASH today! Your support empowers survivors and their families across the DC region.

Support the Campaign for Cornerstone

The Cornerstone building is the largest dedicated safe housing program in the District, providing a furnished apartment where survivors can rebuild their lives and find a path to independence.

Since 2010, generous support from our partnership with the DC Office of Victims Services and Justice Grants has allowed DASH to operate at Cornerstone. However, owning the Cornerstone building outright will allow us to better respond to the increasing need for our services, renovate the 80-year-old building, and innovate for the future to welcome more survivors. 

Your support of the Journey Home: Campaign for Cornerstone will help to secure the future of this home—and the survivors who rely on us—by raising $4.5M over the next two years. By 2024, we plan to complete the purchase of the $3.3M building loan and undergo critical building renovations and upgrades to make this a lasting home for over 50 adults and 65 children each year.

Transform our Home

As a survivor-centered safe housing program, all the needs of all Survivors and their families, regardless of their circumstances are met here – from safe, clean, and comfortable housing, to trauma-informed services; from a playground that allows children to laugh and learn, to laundry facilities – free for up to two years.

Thanks to the generosity of early supporters, we are over 67% towards our $4.5M goal!
