We are proud to announce that DASH was selected as one of Lyft’s community grant winners this year!
DASH was one of three organizations in DC to be selected to help reduce the barriers that the costs of transportation can impose on survivors of domestic violence.
The Lyft transportation credits will ensure that survivors in our programs have the means to travel and access to travel safely. For one survivor, she fears that her abuser knows her current public transportation route and needs assistance to get to work and her children’s school. For another survivor, the comfort of having staff attend court hearings or medical appointments with her makes her feel safe and the transportation credit can support our staff and survivors traveling safely.
Thanks to Lyft for easing barriers to transportation for survivors in our safe housing programs!
