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.

Thank you from Rebecca and her family

Freedom to Play Outside
Freedom to Play Outside

Rebecca was recently able to escape Bulgaria with her two children and return to the USA. They are able to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with Rebecca's family, safe, happy and free from harm. Rebecca is so grateful that her children can play outside and have fun and not be afraid when they come back in the house because their father would be there. Sometimes he would be nice, other times, his rage would leave bruises on their small bodies.

We are thankful to your donations to our program that help rescue women like Rebecca and her two children.

We also wanted to let you know about our Gift For Good on the Global Giving website: a beautiful handmade pillow cover from Jaipur, India to consider for your holiday shopping.

A legal victory for Terry and you helped!

Playing in Leaves
Playing in Leaves

Terry fled Greece, a Hague Convention country, with her kids knowing that her abusive husband would file kidnapping charges against her at home in the USA. Because of donations like yours, Terry was able to get an attorney that successfully proved Terry and her kids had been abused and would be safer at home. Today the kids are having fun playing in leaves and getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas, instead of living in fear of being sent back to Greece where they would have had to endure horrific abuse once again.

Because people like you care, Terry and her kids are safe.
