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.

Eli and his mother Nicole are home because of you!

Earlier this month Eli and Nicole arrived home safely to the USA because of your generosity. They have settled into their room at the home of Nicole's brother and his family, so grateful to be safe. Eli loves living with his cousins. Here is a note from Nicole:

"Eli has blossomed since we came home. He was a little afraid of my brother at first, but now he is happy and chatty. I feel so relieved and safe now. We are going to be okay. Thank you for everything you have done for us.One day I want to help other women and children like you helped us."

I personally know how important your donations are to victims in need. If you are interested in learning more about why I founded the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center 15 years ago you can read the first chapter of my memoir for free at www.harvestingstonesbook.com

I can't thank you enough for chosing our project to donate to on Global Giving. Warmest wishes always, Paula

Because of your generosity, Gracie and Noah are home! It took longer than we had hoped, but they are safe back in the USA now. You helped provide their life-saving journey so they can now live in a home without violence. Here is a note from Gracie:

"There was a time when I didn't think I would make it out alive. The support you have given me over the phone, the airline flight home, the money for food, everything. You are like angels that came down from heaven for me. I will never forget how you helped us... "

Battered mothers and children safe because of you!

Safe because of you

Because of you we have already been able to place five battered mothers and their children into hotels this year! Your donation has helped provide life-saving refuge for victims in danger, who may well have otherwise been on the street in a time of crisis.

Here is a note from one battered mother you helped. "I didn't know what to do. I was so afraid. When I called Lucy from a pay phone and she said she could put me and my baby in a hotel for the night while she arranged a bus ticket for me to get to the city so I could fly home, I cried. I didn't think anyone would care about me that much..."
