Factors that contribute to
Unhealthy Relationships
  • Control and dominance are the
    key issues
  • One or both partners were
    emotionally and/or physically
    abused or neglected as children
  • Abusers typically witnessed
    abuse perpetrated by a role model
  • Both partners were not exposed
    to positive healthy relationships
    while growing up
  • Both partners do not have healthy
    role models for sharing affection,
    managing conflict, or being
    respectful of one's partner
* information provided by Iona College
Extent of the Problem
  • The U.S. Surgeon General ranks
    abuse by husbands and partners
    as the leading cause of injuries to
    women ages 15 to 44
  • Statistics show one in four
    American women will be
    assaulted by a partner or ex-
    partner in her lifetime, regardless
    of race, ethnicity, socio-economic
    status or profession
  • 2 million women are battered
    every year, one every 16 seconds
  • People in unhealthy relationships
    suffer constant stress and
    anxiety, which compromises their
    health, erodes their self-esteem

The mission of the Center for Women’s
Empowerment is to end cycles of chronic
homelessness among single mothers by
providing career development, life skills, and
educational opportunities that will lead them to
total self-sufficiency & permanent housing.
  • According to the University of Delaware’s Center for
    Community Research & Service (Homeless Planning
    Council of DE), the greatest concentration of shelter
    programs is in Wilmington DE (New Castle County)
  • An estimated 88% of homeless households with children
    are headed by single females. 36% have very young
  • Turn over rates in emergency shelters are higher than they
    are in transitional housing programs

Empowered Women In The Spotlight
Meet Shacre Bennett
Shacre Bennett is truly a woman to watch in 2015! She came to us last year for
support from our Rebuilding Your Life After Divorce empowerment group and mentoring
program, attending both our Delaware & Maryland groups. We matched her with a
mentor and provided her with support from our Domestic Violence Liaison.

Her Story
On April 30, 1994 as I sat on my front step at the age of 13, I witnessed my cousin who
was 8 months pregnant, get stabbed to death by her boyfriend and father of her
children. At that point I said I never wanted a man like that and I ended up getting just

around and I found myself in a domestic violence shelter......
