Review for District Alliance for Safe Housing Inc (DASH), Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

This non-profit misses the mark. Its director leaves much to be desired. The staff rarely answers the phone and if director does she is of little help. Phone calls for survivors are rarely returned. We are tired of non-profits who barely give more than provide good job references to their upwardly mobile staff. on Wednesdays they are in a church paired up with a legal clinic that rarely accepts clients to represent but mainly there to do just intakes. The purpose of why DASH is there remains to be seen, what they do is give their phone number and ask you to call then do not answer or call back

Review for Bread for the City, Inc., Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

i cn gladly write a review about Bread of te City. i went to Bread of the City for many years. They have an excelllent top rate staff. Clothing is expensive and for years clothes were made available.I don't mean any walk around the house clothes either. Still to this day in shopping for new and other used clothes, i have yert to see the quality i saw at bread of the city. They no longer have clothes on 7th street,but ill never forget. There was food to tie that loose knot..to tide you over till the next time. There were social workers ready to give iformation. you never had to second guess them. Most of all there was Dr. Randi Abramson who was everything in one package. She came to my domestic violence hearing..although under supeona i could see she was concerned.how could anyone thata has that much to do take the time to notice you. How she did it i never figured out. It takes a lot of energy to give. I used to beleive it was a given.But as i assume more activity in my life, i understand thing s very differently. I now understand people like Gregg bloom who really arae very special people andall the rest who dedicate there lives kto helping others. Heres to you for all you do. Your sacrifice can never be repaid. Lisa R. Queen
