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.

Baby Leo & Mom Jessie Need A Home For The Holidays
 
Jessie called us in November in fear of her life and the life of her baby Leo. Her husband threatened to kill her and went into an terribly violent rage. We mobilized quickly and got Jessie and Leo back to the USA and into a shelter. Jessie's husband knows where Jessie's mother lives so she cannot go home. Jessie found a small studio apartment and needs $1,200 to move in. (First, last and a deposit.) The shelter has household supplies for Jessie and a church is donating furniture. project reportread updates from the field
Protect Clover And Her Mom Maya From Abuse
 
Clover is a toddler that lives in fear with her mom Maya. Most days, Clover's father comes home drunk and angry. Maya does her best to keep Clover safe. We have been safety planning with Maya for a couple of months and should be able to get Clover and Maya back home to the USA soon. We need help to buy Clover and Maya airline tickets so they can escape and live with Maya's mother and father at home. Maya does not want Clover growing up in a violent home. project reportread updates from the field
Bus & Train Tickets For Victims of Violence
 
Domestic violence victims fleeing abuse often need immediate transportation by bus or train to get to safety. This project will enable us to provide bus or train tickets to battered American mothers and their children so they can get to a safe shelter or hotel while we safety plan and access longer term services. We will provide 25 families with bus or train tickets at an average cost of $40 per family with this project. project reportread updates from the field

Help Abused American Mothers with Minutes for Moms
 
The Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center receives over 3000 incoming crisis calls, emails and live chats per year from desperate American women who are being abused overseas. Each minute on the international toll free crisis center hotline, 866-USWOMEN, costs $1.00 in toll charges. We are asking for donations to our Minutes for Mom's Campaign to give moms a lifeline of hope. 100% of all donations will go directly to pay the toll charges 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. project reportread updates from the field
Help 30 Victims Call The Crisis Center Every Month
 
American victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in a foreign country are afraid, vulnerable and unaware of their options for safe law enforcement reporting or safe medical treatment. They may feel too ashamed to tell their friends, family, work colleagues or school counselor. By contributing to this project, we will be able to provide 30 victims per month with a minimum of one hour of advocacy, case management and compassionate informed confidential response internationally toll free. project reportread updates from the field
