Domestic violence is a leading cause of homelessness in DC.
DASH - the District Alliance for Safe Housing - is an innovator in providing access to safe housing and services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families as they rebuild their lives on their own terms.
We envision a culture where safe housing is a human right shared by everyone.
Our continuum of safe housing programs and services ensure that no survivor has to choose between living in an unsafe home or becoming homeless.
DASH works for the day when survivors are respected as independent, are provided the resources for their journey out of abuse, and are given understanding and support instead of blame and judgment. And envision the day when domestic violence and sexual assault are not tolerated, and every home is a safe home.
