At DASH we believe that domestic violence is a community priority that can only be addressed when the whole community is involved. We are so thankful to the community of organizations, individuals and companies that support the DASH mission!

Community Partners

AvalonBay Communities 

AvalonBay believes in supporting the disadvantaged and most vulnerable in our local communities to improve their quality of life. They support DASH through their community investment initiatives year-round by organizing donation drives, sponsoring events, hosting denim days, employee giving, and more! 


CREW DC is a networking association for women in real estate and development. CREW volunteers with DASH on a regular basis, helping us ensure that DASH is a safe welcoming place for residents.

“We are amazed by the great work DASH has done, by providing domestic violence victims with a safe place they can call home. CREW DC enthusiastically supports their mission and looks forward to continuing our work with the survivors, while raising awareness of DASH’s programs.”  Lynn Stith Bennett, 2019 CREW DC President

E&G Group

The partnership with E&G began in 2010 when we purchased the building for our Cornerstone program. While E&G is our partner to provide property management services, they go beyond these services to support survivors and families in this program. From hosting donation drives with their employees, organizing an annual Thanksgiving meal and celebration and sponsorship of our annual event, this continual partnership is a model for the community!

Red Derby

Red Derby is a local neighborhood restaurant and bar that generously hosts up to 6 seasonal drives for DASH families each year, including: Easter, Mother’s Day, Back to School, Thanksgiving, Halloween and Holiday Drives. Red Derby is a huge supporter for DASH in the community. Additionally, the DASH Kids Art Group was founded by two Derby Employees. Red Derby has partnered with DASH since 2010 and we are so grateful for their support!

“Supporting DASH helps the Derby believe we are part of a caring community, a community that takes care of her own by offering encouragement, safe harbor, and a sense of home.  We are honored to be a partner with DASH, and look forward to many more years of standing strong together!” Sasha Carter, Owner, Red Derby
