In using this philosophy to provide housing in ways that not only keep women safe, but help them rebuild their lives, including their credit records, DASH is making a huge difference and helping more women stay away from their abusers.
InPower Women is raising money to support DASH’s upcoming Awards Luncheon on March 28, 2012, which will honor the following individuals as “Allies in Change”: Jamila Larson, Executive Direct of The Homeless Children’s Playtime Project; Andre3w Lazerow, Partner, Covington & Burling LLP; Heather Burns & Kathleen Maloy, Live to Give Charitable Trust; Gustavo Velasquez, Director and Alexis Taylor, General Counsel, DC Office of Human Rights; Paul Aguggia, Partner, Townsend, LLP; Julie Hamre, Volunteer; and Jim Graham, Ward 1 Councilmember, DC City Council.
