Partner Resources

Empowerment Beyond Scars is dedicated to assisting individuals on their journeys of healing from trauma, particularly domestic violence and intimate partner violence. Among the ways our organization helps do this is by encouraging our community to become more aware and informed about domestic violence, and everyone’s role in prevention and recovery.

Our partners at Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence (DCADV) recognize that domestic violence is a serious public health issue that is preventable. We encourage you to visit the DCADV website to:

  • Learn about the underlying circumstances, systems, and conditions that support violence and inequality in relationships
  • Discover trainings and certifications available to teach effective advocacy skills that support safety and empowerment
  • Find practical advice on how every person can play a role in preventing violence and encourage environments where healthy relationships thrive

Our network of partners also includes Child, Inc., People’s Place, and YWCA Delaware, each offering amazing resources and insightful content to help everyone better understand domestic violence and intimate partner violence, and help everyone thrive.

Explore resources aimed at financial empowerment, including financial counseling, budgeting assistance, and access to financial aid programs with Stand By Me Delaware. You can access free, private, one-on-one financial coaching from trained, skilled professionals who help you achieve your goals.

Find support through legal aid services offering guidance on legal rights, protection orders, and advocacy for victims of domestic violence. DCADV has compiled information on legal services available to victims and survivors in Delaware on its website.

Access immediate support through dedicated hotlines and emergency services for individuals experiencing domestic violence or intimate partner violence.
