Did you know?
Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM) was born out of an idea in the early 1980s that would unite advocates across the country who sought to end domestic violence. At first, it was just one day devoted to activities on the local, state and national levels. But then, as popularity for this event grew, this day turned into an entire week. In 1987, the first DVAM was recognized. Awareness is such an important part of the battle, because it helps more and more people recognize and respond to the danger signs that often accompany domestic violence. Awareness also helps generate the financial support necessary to offer assistance to victims and survivors.
The Founder and Managing Advocate Director of Break the Silence, Kristen Paruginog no longer wanted to suffer in silence so she found the strength and courage to Break Her Silence with the intention of encouraging others to break theirs as well. There are so many people who are still suffering in silence and we are here to say you don't have to be silent anymore.
The mission of BTSADV is to provide community resources and support services to victims, survivors, and families affected by domestic violence.
