Approve the Permit for a Playground for Children Escaping Domestic Violence!

    1. Petition by

      DASH DC

      Washington, United States

DASH (District Alliance for Safe Housing) is a local housing program in Washington, D.C. that serves families who have survived abusive situations. The women and children in our programs have experienced traumatic and distressing life events.  So DASH makes every effort to ensure that children in our programs can relieve their stress with the chance to play freely and safely in an environment that they call home.  With the support of KaBOOM! and in partnership with The Washington Redskins Foundation, Wells Fargo, SalesForce.com, and the community, we have the opportunity to build a playground for our Cornerstone Residence so that the children living here have a safe and healthy place to play and do what they do best – be kids! 

For more information please send an email to Info@dashdc.org.
