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.

Laura Is Back In The USA And Registered For School Because of You!

You have made a young woman's dream come true. Laura is so excited to begin classes at her local community college for the winter term! Laura is sad that she had to leave her family but she is developing a new support network and feels safe.

Here is a note from Laura: "There was a time when I did not want to live. I couldn't take the abuse of my parents, and I couldn't leave. I thought my only way out was to kill myself. Now, my world has completely changed. I have a new life and I am determined to be successful. Thank you for caring and giving me hope again."
