Many factors play into leaving an abusive relationship permanently. So, if you are one of those people who have returned to your abuser, understand that it is a difficult process, and you shouldn’t feel shame about having gone back. However, here at Break The Silence Against Domestic Violence, we want to help you find resources and support for staying away from those unhealthy relationships.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to healing from the impact of domestic violence. What one person experienced may be different from another. Our programs create a network that connects survivors and Legacy Families to have open forums with those that understand.
Meeting survivors and Legacy Families where they are at in their journey.
Our programs focus on serving three groups
BTSADV offers an annual Survivor Sister Retreat for women affected by domestic violence. This program allows participants to engage in a variety of workshops and activities throughout the weekend.
BTSADV Helpline 1-855-287-1777
Our helpline is not a crisis hotline. Advocates are available 8 am to 5pm PST to speak with callers about experiencing and overcoming domestic violence, seeking resources and information, or talking about concerns and unhealthy aspects of their relationship.
Angel Fund is a 22-day fundraising effor to support our Angel Scholarship Program. The 22-day fundraising effort concludes with our annual Angel Run. Donations raised for the Angel Fund are awarded to students who have been impacted by domestic violence.
Holidays of Hope is our annual gift to touch the hearts of families who need holiday gifts. Our Holidays Helpers sponsor children under the age of 18 with essentials or wish list items.
