HerStory Ensemble

                    HerStory Ensemble Winter 2018

HerStory Ensemble's primary goal is to address the social and economic justice issues of homelessness. Our work provides an opportunity to bring focus to the issue of homelessness and advocacy efforts to end it.


A New Year of Hope and Advocacy


As we enter 2018 we at HerStory Ensemble would like to thank those who have walked along side us to support women who are experiencing homelessness, are former homeless or at risk of homelessness.  The year 2017 presented many challenges and opportunities toward expanding the narrative about the issue of homelessness and advocacy for a Homeless Bill of Rights for Delaware.

Herstory Ensemble was able to assist women experiencing homelessness and coming out of homelessness by assisting in keeping cell phone service, obtaining a medical walker for better mobility, coordinating transportation services for appointments with doctors and service agencies, providing transportation for grocery shopping, and securing storage for persnal possessions.

The Community Empowerment Institute (the education arm of HerStory Ensemble) launched in Fall 2017, participated in a broad spectrum of community activites focused on homelessness. Counted among these was county viewings of the movies "Pursuit of Happyness" highlighting childhood homelessness and parenting, "Peace Train: Next Stop-HOUSING" an interactive play supporting Peace Week Delaware 2017 to bring focus to the need for more affordable housing, and our continued promotion of our legislative advocacy cards supporting Senate Bill 49, Delaware's pending Homeless Bill of Rights.

We began 2017 as co-coordinators of the "Housing Not Handcuffs Community Justice Walk" commemorating the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Dover, DE and end hopeful about the coming new year.  If you have not already done so, visit www.housingnothandcuffs.org and sign to support affordable housing and to end criminalization of homelessness.  Also contact HerStory Ensemble to obtain Legislative Advocacy cards requesting Delaware Senators support Senate Bill 49 to protect the rights of people experiencing homelessness while seeking housing, employment, and services.

We pledge to continue to be a voice for the voiceless and to promote empowerment in 2018 by addressing the stigma, stereotypes, myths, criminalization and discrimination connected to the issue of homelessness.  A specail thank you to the advisory members and supporters of HerStory Ensemble. Yes, we are empowered to End Homelessness.
