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.

Record Number Of Calls in 2013!

Every year we witness an ever increasing number of victims calling for assistance. Although the final numbers are not in, we expect to have received over 3200 incoming calls and emails from 60 countries.

Without funding of the international toll free emergency number 866-USWOMEN, this would not be possible.

We thank you for your belief in this valuable resource:

Here is a quote from a caller: "Without you I don't know what I would have done. I can't believe how much time Ava took with me on the phone. Hours and hours of safety planning that saved my life. I can't thank you enough."

With gratitude, The AODVC Team

SASHAA Program Website On-line!

Earlier this year we were able to publish our SASHAA Program website! www.sashaa.org

With this website we are witnessing an ever increasing number of calls from American sexual assault victims who have found us on-line through our website.

This is because of donors like you who believe in our mission.

Here is a quote from one victim: "Having Lucinda as my case manager at such a terrible time in my life was my life-line. I had so many people telling me what to do, but Lucinda listened to me, asked me what I wanted, and told me that every decision was mine. She provided so much support to me. Thank you."

Thank you for your belief in our mission.

With gratitude, The AODVC Team
