The Survive2Thrive Foundation (S2T) was founded by domestic violence survivor/victor, Courtney Santana.

Together with her team, board, and volunteers, Courtney tirelessly works to create opportunities, resources, and awareness.  She has a diverse background in volunteerism and community philanthropy and has she has been invited to speak about the power of empowerment over victimization as the best method for victim success globally.

In 2006, she started the survivor support initiative Survive2Thrive Foundation, to help provide direct services to survivors of domestic violence.  She is using connection and innovation in technology and thought to bring light and action to the growing epidemic in the domestic violence community, forced homelessness and displacement for victims and their families.
