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

Programs & Services

DASH provides help, housing, and healing to survivors facing homelessness in the wake of domestic and sexual violence. Unlike housing for the general homeless population, safe housing requires specialized services and increased safety that is provided along a continuum of care.

We facilitate this unique continuum of longer-term and low-barrier housing by offering emergency to transitional-and-permanent safe housing and wraparound services for those who need to leave their current home to reach safety and transition to independence.

Our core belief that survivors are the experts in their situations informs our low-barrier, voluntary services, trauma-informed, survivor-centered approach and best practice evidence-based model.

Check out our Safe Housing Programs or Technical Assistance pages for more information.
