Housing Eligibility Requirements


DASH Network is not an emergency shelter. We are a program that offers housing and other services that generally operates at full capacity. For this reason, we do not accept office visits without an appointment.

DASH Network’s housing application is closed as we are at max capacity. Please complete an interest form to be placed on a waiting list and we will contact you when capacity becomes available. Submitting the form below does not guarantee future acceptance into the DASH program. For a list of other resources, please click here.
