Your Home for Domestic Violence Resources

Everyone deserves to live the best version of their lives. However, it's an unfortunate reality that domestic violence inhibits many people in our communities from leading a safe and rewarding lifestyle. Here at BTSF, we are ready to live up to our name and break the silence regarding this topic. Our team of compassionate individuals is here to support victims of domestic violence and help them escape any negativity in their lives. If you're a victim of domestic abuse or know someone in an abusive situation, contact us now for a range of domestic violence resources.

About Us

In 2005, Maribel Garcia founded Break the Silence Foundation, Inc. (BTSF) as a 501(c)(3) organization with offices in Berwyn, IL. We offer support for domestic violence victims in the forms of crisis intervention, advocacy, self-improvement, healthy relationship workshops, self-defense, and workforce development. We provide a safe, violence-free environment and support to all program participants. In partnership with Family Bridges USA, our participants attend a series of workshops designed to help each participant end the cycle of abuse.
