We Are BTSADV

Connecting with Our Australian Survivors

Australia is the first country outside of the United States that BTSADV has expanded to. This expansion begins with the creation of our online Australian Survivor Sister’s Facebook group. As we begin to grow this community, we hope to bring all of BTSADV’s services to Australia and to serve every demographic of survivors and angel families. Our silence will be broken…around the globe.

We’re bringing together our BTSADV Australia family to help establish better avenues of advocacy and support. We recognize your needs and hear you. You are not alone in this fight. Australia, it’s time to Break Your Silence.

Heidi Lynne, BTSADV Executive Director
