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.
Please Help Rescue Buttons!
Buttons is Jacob's kitty. We are able to help Jacob and his mom escape abuse in Amsterdam but we need funds to get Buttons home. Jacob would be devastated if he had to leave Buttons behind.
Please Help Us Rescue 10 Pets in 2017!
Every year we help hundreds of American domestic violence victims in foreign countries. Many of them have pets that also need rescuing. For victims without money, this may mean having to leave their pets behind when fleeing abuse. With this project we can assure 10 small pets can be rescued in 2017.
Please Help Carter and Lily Flee Home To The USA!
Lily has been experiencing abuse from her American husband in Vietnam. When she called us earlier this month he had "punished" her the night before by not letting her feed Carter dinner because she did not call him at the time he had specified when she went out shopping. Lily asked us to help her and Carter get home.
Please Help Rescue Ashley, Mason and Chipper!
Ashley has been living in the Netherlands with her American husband for two years. Her husband became more and more abusive and she tried to flee home several times. When she got pregnant he refused to let Ashley go home to give birth to Mason in the USA. We have been working with Ashley for several weeks and have a window of opportunity to bring Ashley, Mason and their dog Chipper home.
Please Help Isaac and Lauren!
Lauren and her son Isaac are being abused by her husband in Argentina. Lauren was able to find her and Isaac's American passports that her husband had hidden so she could not leave and return home to the USA.
Please Help Rescue Abigail and Rusty!
Abigail and Rusty are inseparable. Olivia needs to escape abuse from her husband in Poland and flee home to the USA. She doesn't have enough money to get them all home and leaving Rusty behind would break Abigail's heart. With your support we can get Olivia, Abigail and Rusty together.

Please Help Sapphira and Her Mom Yara Escape Abuse
American woman with children in foreign countries don't have the funds to flee abuse, and when they do manage to flee, they arrive home with only what they can take on the airplane. With this project we will be able to get Sapphira and her mom Yara safely home from Israel and away from the abuse of Yara's husband and help them with some basic needs when they get home.
