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.

American Sexual Assault Victims Safe Because Of You!

Because of your generosity, we have already been able to provide emergency hotel stays to three American sexual assault victims overseas!

We can't tell you enough how valuable this program is for victims and how much of a difference your donations make for a victim. To be in a safe place immediately after an assault while they work with one of our case managers is invaluable.

Here is a quote from one of the victims you helped: "It was the worst thing that had ever happened to me. I was alone, afraid and ashamed I had let this happen. I could not believe you put me up in a hotel that night. It was the small silver lining in a terribly dark cloud. Thank you."

We anticipate we will help hundreds of American sexual assault victims in 2014. If you like the work we are doing, please consider becoming a recurring donor to our parent project, Sexual Assault Support & Help For Americans Abroad, between December 20th and December 31st and Global Giving will match your December donation 100% as long as the recurring donation lasts four months.

If you give $25 a month for four months, your $100 becomes $125!

Here is a link to the parent project:

We sincerely thank you for your support and wish you and your loved ones a happy New Year.

Record Number Of Calls in 2013!

Every year we witness an ever increasing number of victims calling for assistance. Although the final numbers are not in, we expect to have received over 3200 incoming calls and emails from 60 countries.

Without funding of the international toll free emergency number 866-USWOMEN, this would not be possible.

We thank you for your belief in this valuable resource:

Here is a quote from a caller: "Without you I don't know what I would have done. I can't believe how much time Ava took with me on the phone. Hours and hours of safety planning that saved my life. I can't thank you enough."

With gratitude, The AODVC Team
