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.

Protecting Pets In Domestic Violence 2017
 
According to the US Department of State, 8 million Americans live overseas. While it is unclear how many of these families have pets, we know that approximately 30% of the victims we serve have pets in their homes while domestic violence is taking place. That is about 150 pets per year that are exposed to and experiencing violence in the home. Each year we provide food, shelter, airline flights, crates, medical examinations and basic needs for dozens of pets. project reportread updates from the field
Help Keep Battered Mothers And Children Together
 
Battered American mothers flee home for their safety to the USA with their children. Their abusers file petitions trying to force the return of their children to the foreign country even when the children are just American. There is no defense for battered American mothers. We need to hire good attorneys for these victims so the children won't be returned to the abuser in the foreign country and be subjected to more abuse and be separated from their primary caretaker, their mother. project reportread updates from the field
Global Sexual Assault Prevention & Crisis Response
 
If you were a victim of Sexual Assault while traveling overseas would you want someone to call who could help? According to the US Department of State over 65 million Americans travel abroad each year eager to explore new adventures in foreign countries. Unfortunately, many become victims of sexual assault. In an expansion of our mission, we are launching our SASHAA Program - Sexual Assault Support & Help For Americans Abroad in response to the increasing number of victims who are reaching out. project reportread updates from the field

Suri needs daycare while her mom Ashley works
 
Last month we were able to help Suri and her mom Ashley escape abuse in Japan. As with most battered American women that flee home, they have nothing when they arrive.
