In 2006, the District Alliance for Safe Housing (DASH) was founded at a time when there were less than 50 beds in the city dedicated specifically for victims of domestic violence. Survivors with multiple barriers including mental health and addiction issues had even fewer options for safe housing. Unlike the various housing programs in the city, the vision for DASH has been to create a culture where safe housing is a right shared by everyone. This means that all survivors, regardless of their circumstance, disability, or need should be able to live without fear of abuse or homelessness, and that ensuring that right is incumbent on everyone in the community.
DASH is the largest dedicated safe housing provider for survivors and their families in DC.
