This month is a special milestone for DASH, and we want to share it with you!
One year ago, in August 2020, we launched our Right to Dream safe housing program.
True to our mission, we innovated this program to address the service gaps in our city.
Our program advocates reported a substantive need for housing and supportive services that focus on transitioning youth (ages 18-24) escaping domestic and sexual violence.
Right to Dream is now the first program of its kind in DC to connect transitioning youth survivors who are detached from their families, homeless or unstably housed, such as couch surfing or on the street, with longer-term safe housing and wraparound supports.
Will you join us to celebrate by making a gift in honor of Right to Dream?
Follow along on our social media to hear more stories about the impact of this program for youth survivors.
