Over the past seven years, this volunteer-run organization has reached thousands of people on a national level by educating about healthy relationships, spreading awareness about domestic violence, and leading preventative programs for victims and survivors. The majority of volunteers are survivors who have left their domestic violence situations and have decided to dedicate their time and love to help our cause. In return, they have allowed themselves to grow and thrive in their own journey of healing by working on amazing BTS fundraising and scholarship campaigns, planning BTS survivor retreats, or taking a shift on the BTS seven day survivor-run helpline.
They are currently at a record-high in clients served through their programs. They expect to see an increase in the coming months, due to a recent spike in growth through their social media platforms. The BTS family and support networks continue to grow daily with a strong social media presence and empowered survivor sisters and brothers. This year, they granted $8,000 in financial assistance to graduates of their National Grants of Hope Financial Empowerment Program. These resilient survivors completed a rigorous 16-week virtual financial literacy training hosted by advocates and industry professionals. Their National Memorial (Angel) Scholarship Program where we awarded a record-setting $15,000 in scholarships to students impacted by domestic violence. In the past three years, they have awarded a total of over $25,000 in scholarships.
