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
