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.

Yasmin Finished Her First Term Of College!

Because of your generous donations, Yasmin just finished her first term at her local community college! She is thrilled. We have not been able to get Yasmin's mother out of Egypt yet but we are hopeful that will happen sometime this year. Yasmin is going to work this summer and go back to school in the fall.

Here is part of an email she sent to us:

"My life is so different now. I am living with my grandmother. I have friends. I miss my mother but I know she will join me soon. One day, when I am a social worker, I am going to help other women the way you helped me."

We are sure Yasmin will be successful! Thank you for helping her along her journey! The AODVC Team

You Provided 5 Families With Train & Bus Tickets!

Since the middle of February through May 31st, we were able to provide 5 battered mothers with bus tickets and train tickets for themselves and their children to get from danger to safety because of your generosity.

Most of these were used after we had gotten these families back to an entry point in the USA to their final destination, most often back to their parents homes or into a domestic violence shelter.

We know that the rest of the tickets will be used this summer as even more battered mothers flee home to the USA for safety with their children.

Thank you so much for caring about battered American mothers and their children in crisis! The AODVC Team

Maise Loves Her Day Care!

Maise has been in day care for almost one month while her mom Miranda has been working because of you! We helped Miranda flee Scotland with Maise in March. We initially placed them into shelter and got them connected to local resources. They went into a transitional housing program for battered mothers and children homeless because of domestic violence. Miranda got a job and we paid for the first month of daycare for Maise.

Here is a note from Miranda:

"You have literally saved our lives. We are safe. Maise loves her day care. And, I am going to be able to pay for Maise's day care after the first month so she doesn't have to change. It is right next door. I am beyond grateful for your help!"

We want to thank you for helping Miranda, Maise and other battered mothers and children! The AODVC Team
