Are You In an
Unhealthy Relationship?
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 children
  • Turn over rates in emergency shelters are higher than
    they are in transitional housing programs

  • How self-esteem is about loving themselves, not people loving you
  • The difference between a healthy relationship vs an unhealthy relationship
  • Obtaining success despite unplanned pregnancy
  • Life after sexual abuse & trauma (a lesson of hope)
  • The importance of working to earn your own money
  • Working provides a sense of pride, achievement, & accomplishment
  • Steps to applying for a job & how to do a 30-second commercial
  • How to use their God-given gifts and talents to start a business, and...
  • Identifying their purpose and finding their passion
  • All of the girls were engaged, eager to learn, and motivated to start taking action on their goals and dreams NOW!

But 75% of them, however, will go home to very dark and dyer circumstances, such as sexual exploitation, family sexual abuse, poverty, and little money to stay in
school. You can partner with us to continue our efforts to provide a way for these girls to break cycles of poverty and hopelessness and live their dreams.

Your donation will help us continue to send practical aid such as personal care products, clothing and shoes to the girls, as well as support our Single Sisters
Empowered 2 LIVE! Teen program that we seek to implement, enabling us to continue our educational workshops and ongoing programs.
