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.

A LifeLine of Hope

This year we are once again looking at a record number of calls coming in via the international toll free crisis line, 866-USWOMEN.

Once of these victims is Remia. She called the crisis center in the middle of the night our time from a hospital bed. Remia sustained severe injuries from her husband. Because of donations to this program, Remia was able to speak to an AODVC advocate for over an hour, the only light in the darkness of the worst moment of her life. Since then we have gotten Remia back home safely with her daughter to the USA. This is possible because of the donations received giving battered mothers minutes on the crisis line with a trained advocate or case manager.

Remia is only on of the nearly 600 victims that contact us in desperation each year. Minutes For Moms helps save lives, one battered mother at a time.

First I want to personally thank you for your support of our Help Rescue 500 Battered Women And Their Children program. This program is critical to the safety of hundreds of battered American women and their children annually.

As a supporter, I also wanted to let you know that I have published my memoir, Harvesting Stones, An American woman's international journey of survival, almost 15 years after escaping Dubai.

If you are interested, my memoir goes into detail of why I was compelled to start the organization. To read the first chapter for free please go to www.harvestingstonesbook.com

For the launch on October 7th, the kindle version will be available on amazon.com at a discounted price of only $2.99. 

Folks that buy Harvesting Stones between October 7th and October 17th, and leave a review, will be entered to win a $100 Amazon gift card. On October 18th we will pick the lucky winner!
