Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
Since its inception in 2005, BJ's Charitable Foundation has given over 19 million dollars to community based programs and initiatives like DASH that serve people in need. BJ's emphasizes their commitment to meaningful charitable giving, "At BJ’s, we take pride in actively working to improve the communities our Members live in. Which is why we started the BJ’s Charitable Foundation."
DASH is excited to join the list of innovative organizations involved in hunger prevention, self-sufficiency, healthcare and education that BJ’s supports. The $2,500 grant will have a direct impact on the lives of the survivors of domestic violence and their families that live in the DASH safe housing program as they escape the threat of violence. The funds will support residence assistance and welcome baskets with urgent needs such as blankets and sheets, transportation passes and cookware that might otherwise be financially out of reach for survivors and their families.

DASH is an innovator in providing access to safe housing and services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence and their families as they rebuild their lives on their own terms. We seek to strengthen and expand the local safety net for survivors by providing high quality, voluntary services that are responsive to their individual needs and by engaging lawmakers, community members, service providers, and survivors in the movement to end domestic violence.
