DASH’s Cornerstone program is the largest dedicated safe housing program for survivors of domestic and sexual violence and children in the District.
Here, survivors and children are welcomed with a key to their own furnished apartment, on-site advocacy, a playground and meditation garden, laundry facilities, and trauma-informed services for free for up to two years to rebuild their lives.
We are in the early stages of our Journey Home: Campaign for Cornerstone to secure the future of this home – and the survivors and children who rely on us. Our goal is to raise $4.5M over the next two years.
Our Cornerstone building is at the heart of our work for survivors. It is also home to our vital wraparound services, daily operations, and administrative offices.
By 2022, we plan to complete the purchase of the $3.3M building loan and undertake critical building renovations and upgrades to make this a lasting home for over 50 adults and 65 children each year.
