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.

Suri is in daycare because of your generosity!

Ashley is so grateful that she is able to put Suri in day care and have funds for her bus tickets to work for one month because of you! She has been working so hard to get her life reestablished after escaping her abusive husband in Japan.

Here is a note from Ashley: "I never would have been able to escape and come home and be able to start my life again without the help I have received from AODVC. I am grateful every day to be safe with Ashley in our own apartment. Because of you we are going to be just fine."

We would like to thank you for helping us help Ashley and Suri! The AODVC Team

Abigail and Rusty are home!

After a bit of a delay, Abigail and Rusty finally made it home last month with Olivia. Olivia's abuser became suspicious that she might be trying to escape back home to the USA so they had to wait longer than anticipated to make their escape.

But they are home, safe and sound with Olivia's parents. The plane ride from Portland was long. Abigail couldn't understand why Rusty couldn't sit with her on the plane. Olivia assured her that Rusty was comfy and cozy in his carrier in another part of the plane.

They had quite a joyful reunion when they landed back in the USA!

Without donations like yours Abigail, Rusty and Olivia would not be free, at home in the USA living without abuse. Thank you! The AODVC Team

You have already helped two battered mothers!

Since this project was funded in mid-January you have already helped two battered American mothers with childcare!

Stephanie needed help with child care for her son Jacob after fleeing her abusive husband in Jamaica. With your donations she was able to put Jacob into child care two days a week for one month. The other three days Stephanie's mother is able to take care of Jacob while Stephanie works. After the month is over she will be able to sustain the other two days herself.

Bree escaped Bolivia and was able to put her daughter Jadine into child care for one week while she successfully interviewed for jobs. Bree was also able to connect with a single-mothers child care exchange group and will be able to barter child care with other moms.

Both Stephanie and Bree have been successful because of your help! Thank you so much for your generosity! The AODVC Team
