The Company owner is a survivor of Domestic Violence. Executive Chef Delphia Brewton knows through experience what is like to be abused spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and sexually. Chef Delphia has experienced homelessness (more than once), low self-esteem, and unemployment all due to Domestic Violence. Chef Delphia knows that working with the world on your shoulders is not an easy task. It is a fact that Domestic Violence Robs victims of their self-worth, identity, peace of mind, homes, children, relationship with their children, confidence and much more. The main reason victims return to their abusers is lack of financial security and homelessness. Victims will settle for abuse because they don’t believe that they can be financially secure in their current state of mind. Fact: “In abusive relationships, there may be a cycle of abuse during which tensions rise and an act of violence is committed, followed by a period of reconciliation and calm. Victims of domestic violence may be trapped in domestic violent situations through isolation, power and control, cultural acceptance, lack of financial resources, fear, shame, or to protect children. Because of abuse, victims may experience physical disabilities, dysregulated aggression, chronic health problems, mental illness, limited finances, and poor ability to create healthy relationships. Victims may experience severe psychological disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. Children who live in a household with violence often show psychological problems from an early age, such as avoidance, hypervigilance to threats, and dysregulated aggression which may contribute to vicarious traumatization” [Oxford New York: Taylor & Francis, p. 13, ISBN 9781136742088].
