6 years later, BTSADV has grown to become a national nonprofit organization predominately led by survivor-volunteers who serve victims, survivors, and families affected by domestic violence. Kristen understood the unmet needs of survivors and developed a unique organization that could bridge the gap in services between shelters, direct service providers, government agencies, academic institutions, businesses and the community. Each program we offer is designed to empower, educate, and fulfill the needs of survivors and their families through our unique connective resources.
BTSADV compliments the services crisis shelters offer and assist in decreasing the number of times victims return to abusive partners. Recovering after abuse can be a lifelong journey. We are committed to addressing healing after crisis by providing a national network for survivors to connect, speak out, and advocate against abuse.
We welcome and encourage new partnerships to address the needs of our community and to end domestic violence.
