Why Our Work Matters
The statistics speak for themselves.
Between 22 and 57% of all homeless women report that domestic violence was the immediate cause of their homelessness
Over 90% of homeless women have experienced severe physical or sexual abuse at some point in their lives, and 63% have been victims of intimate partner violence as adults. (source: https://nnedv.org/)
One in five women in the United States have been raped in their lifetime
For people who have experienced sexual violence or other trauma, disasters can trigger memories, feelings, and responses connected to past traumatic experiences. (source: https://www.nsvrc.org/)
Mental/emotional abuse centers around control, manipulation, isolation, demeaning or threatening behavior
People who suffer mental/emotional abuse can experience confusion, fear, difficulty concentrating, low confidence as well as anxiety, insomnia, and social withdrawal
