Housing Resource Center

 The Housing Resource Center (HRC) is the hub of DASH’s efforts to prevent homelessness among domestic and sexual violence survivors. The HRC facilitates a weekly walk-in center for survivors seeking information, support, and services. The HRC invites men, women, and families, including the elderly, immigrants, and LGBTQ+ communities in the national capital region.

The HRC is currently available once a week on Wednesdays, but not less than twice a month between the hours of 1pm –4pm. We are here for you and are available to continue providing safe housing resources, safety planning, and connections to community resources. Микрозайм онлайн.
