We provide safe housing for domestic violence survivors in the DC area.

What We Do

DASH 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.

We provide a continuum of safe housing options to ensure that no survivor has to become homeless as a result of abuse. Since 2006, DASH remains the largest dedicated safe housing provider for survivors and their families escaping violence in the District. Learn more
