Emergency Shelter For American Mothers & Children


You have helped 6 battered American mothers and their children so far this year in France, Germany, Italy and the UK. These mothers were desperate to escape their children and protect them from the abuse in their homes. Because of you, our case managers were able to get them into shelter while they worked with them for longer term solutions.

We raised enough money with this project to help another 30 battered Ameican mothers with shelter this summer, the time when most of the victims we help want to flee abuse, seek immediate shelter, then try to return to the USA.

Your donations provide the critical first step for a victim. We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to charitable giving. We are honored that you have chosen us and believe in our mission.

Best wishes, Paula

Microproject Disclaimer

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Help Rescue 500 Battered Women And Their Children. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.

If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
