Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center

We work with abused American women and children in foreign countries to provide domestic violence, child abuse advocacy and sexual assault advocacy, resources and tools so that they can navigate the complicated jurisdictional, legal & social international landscapes, to be able to live free of abuse either in the foreign country or back in the United States via an international toll free crisis line, 866-USWOMEN, accessible from 175 countries, serving a population estimated at 7 million American civilians living overseas, 1.1 million military personnel and their dependents and the 68 million Americans that travel overseas every year.

Two Emergency Phones Already Given Because Of You!

So far this year we have already given emergency phones to two battered mothers escaping domestic violence with their children. Phones are life saving for victims in fear of their lives and the lives of their children. It may seem like a small thing, something we take for grated every day. But a phone can be an empowering tool for a victim.

Tanya who escaped from Germany writes "Thank you so much! I really had no idea how I was going to manage to speak to my case manager Julie, my mom, my dad and the attorney you guys got for me. The phone at the shelter is used by everyone and it is always busy. I feel so much safer now."

The AODVC team wants to thank you for providing emergency phones to victims in need! Best wishes!

Cassidy & Emma Have A Home Because Of You!

Cassidy & Emma are happily tucked into their new apartment. They moved in the first week of January and have been slowly settling in. Cassidy wrote this to us in an email:

"The apartment is perfect! Yes, it is small but it is ours. It is so cozy and I don't have to worry about not being able to see and hear Emma playing. And we are on the ground floor so I don't have to worry about stairs. The apartment is our quiet little sanctuary. Emma is happy and that is all that matters."

Thank you so much for caring about Cassidy and Emma. Because of you they are well on their way to a life without violence, safe and secure! The AODVC Team.

Joanna, Max & Bella Are Home Because Of You!

Joanna, Max & Bella arrived home safely last week because of you! It took longer than we had hoped but they are all safe and sound. They are living with Joanna's mother right now, but Joanna is looking for a job already and hopes to have their own place by the summer. Joanna wrote us an email and we wanted to share a part of it with you:

"I have never been more exhausted or more happy in my life. Because of you Max and Bella are with me. I just want to forget the past and the horrible things that happened. I want to look to the future but I will never forget how you helped us, ever."

We want to thank you for understanding how important pets are to victims of violence. They are often to only form of comfort for victims. We know that because of you Joanna, Max & Bella are well on their way to a new, happy, violence free life.

Thank you. The AODVC Team.
