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.

Gracie loves her foster family!

Gracie moved in with her foster family last week and is doing great! Megan goes and visits her every evening before she returns to the domestic violence shelter. Here is part of an email we received from Megan:

"You don't know how much I appreciate having a safe foster home for Gracie while I go through this life transition. Knowing she is being well taken care of while I get my life back on track is priceless..."

We can't thank you enough for helping Gracie and Megan and for helping pets who are in domestic violence be safe from abuse. The AODVC Team.

Martha is home because of your generosity!

You gave Martha the greatest gift of all! Her freedom from her abusive husband in Costa Rica and she was able to spend Christmas with her Daughter!

Martha and her daughter went to the bank yesterday and opened an account and have changed the address for Martha's social security checks.

Next week Martha has an appointment with a new doctor so she can get a physical and her perscriptions for her medications back on track.

Your donation made a life altering, and maybe even life saving difference for Martha. The AODVC team, Martha and her daughter thank you so much for your selfless generosity!

Olisa is home because of you!

Because of your generosity we were able to get Olisa's airline ticket changed and have her home for the holidays! You have truly been Olisa's guardian angel as she has had to navigate through her terrible ordeal. Her parents were so happy to have her home. Here is part of an email we received from Olisa.

"If it hadn't have been for your organization I don't know what I would have done. You are my silver lining in a very dark, horrible cloud. I am so happy to be home..."

We can't thank you enough for helping Olisa! The AODVC/SASHAA Team
