DASH is thrilled to announce its newest partnership with Uber who is donating 1,000 free rides to help transport survivors of domestic and sexual violence in DASH’s care to and from vaccination sites to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.
We are so thankful to Uber for their commitment to “eliminating transportation barriers for vulnerable populations to receive their COVID-19 shots,” said Michele Blackwell, Uber’s Public Affairs Manager.
This past year has highlighted the increased hardships that survivors and their children face in navigating resources to heal and rebuild their lives and we value this move toward mitigating yet another barrier for safety.
DASH’s doors have remained open to welcome survivors and children in need of a safe home during the pandemic. Our services have been called upon more than ever due to increases in domestic and sexual violence cases in our community. We are grateful for the partnership with Uber to ensure that survivors in our programs have safe and reliable transportation to access the vaccine.Koube Ngaaje, DASH Executive Director
