Programs & Services

DASH provides help, housing, and healing to survivors facing homelessness in the wake of domestic and sexual violence. Unlike housing for the general homeless population, safe housing requires specialized services and increased safety that is provided along a continuum of care. 

We facilitate this unique continuum of housing services from emergency-to-transitional and permanent housing and emergency financial assistance for those who need to leave their current home to reach safety by providing unfettered access to low-barrier safe housing. 

Our core belief that survivors are the experts in their situations informs our low-barrier, voluntary services, trauma-informed, survivor-centered approach and best practices evidence-based model.

Check out our Safe Housing Programs or Technical Assistance pages for more information.
