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.

The Gift of Empowerment

Dear Supporters and Friends of AODVC,

Season’s greetings from the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center. Between January 1st and December 17th, 2011, we received 2,249 incoming crisis communications from 479 families. AODVC was able to offer case management, danger to safety relocations, legal assistance, counseling, and assistance with basic needs.  

During this holiday season you can give the gift of empowerment to women and children facing violence internationally. American civilians and military members abused abroad are in desperate need of assistance now more than ever as they have been excluded from the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. Americans abused abroad are an extremely underserved population and they need your help. Please provide the gift of strength and the means to leave abuse for women in domestic violence situations.

If you donate to AODVC through Global Giving in honor of, in memory of, or as a gift to someone, Global Giving will send that person an e-card, print at home card, or physical tribute card. You will have the option of choosing the type of card and design. This campaign will be available until December 31st.

A Time of Thanks

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, many people take this time to reflect on what and whom they are thankful for. Survivors of domestic violence and the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center are thankful for your generous support.

In the past two years, crisis communications have nearly doubled. Between January 1st and October 31st   we received 1,991 crisis communications from 429 families. Because of donations like yours, AODVC was able to provide advocacy, case management, and basic needs assistance to Americans abused overseas.

A survivor from Indonesia sent the following to the AODVC Case Managers,

Let me take this opportunity to say thank you again. I was able to take care of 3 immediate needs. Food, the landlord, co-pay on medications. Thank you. I feel that I've been looking for your organization these past 4 years. Because of your actions, I have been experiencing a new sense of courage and empowerment.”   

Thank you for your past and present support.
