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.

Jessica & Sam are home from Brazil because of you!

What a journey Jessica and Sam have had! They are now safe and sound at home with Jessica's mom and dad in the USA. We weren't able to get them out until last week. Jessica's husband hid her American passport and we had to get a new passport issued with the American Embassy.

Here is a note from Jessica:

"Sam is so happy. He is romping with my parent's dog Bucky and chasing the cats until they turn on him and he backs up barking. I am doing really good. I am taking some time to recover. None of this would have been possible without you. I thank the Lord every day I found you. You will always be in my heart."

Thank you so much for helping Jessica & Sam! The AODVC Team

Bobo is home because of you!

Hannah, Bobo and Hannah's mom were home on Christmas eve because of you! What a wonderful gift you gave to this family escaping domestic violence from Argentina! And home in time for the holidays. It was the best possible gift you could have given.

Hannah is so happy. She and Bobo are scamping around at her grandparents house. Here is a note from Hannah's mom:

"I haven't seen Hannah like this for a long time. She is laughing and playing and singing again. You don't know how much your help means to us."

We want to thank you for your generosity and opening your heart to help this family come home with Bobo!
