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.

Your donations helped 547 women in 2012!

Because of your generosity, we were able to help 547 American women, plus their children,  in 57 countries suffering with domestic violence. That is a record number. While we wish there was no need for our services, we are honored that you find our mission of value and donate to help American women and children in crisis overseas.

Here is a quote from someone you helped: "I can't believe how wonderful Christmas was! For the first time, the children were able to have a real Christmas and not be screamed at or hit by their father. We had a small tree and the church you connected us with donated new toys and clothes. They even went grocery shopping and got us a turkey! I have tears of happiness and thankfulness as I write this to you..."

Thank you so much for supporting our mission!

Your donations helped 21 families in 2012!

Because of your generosity, 21 families were able to get from danger to safety back to the United States in 2012.

That is a record number! These families are now at various stages of re-establishing their lives free of violence after seeking safety at home.

Here is a quote from one family:"I didn't think anyone cared. When I found your information on the internet and called I could not believe I was speaking to someone who understood what it was like to be an American trapped in a foreign country fearing for the lives of myself and my children. God bless you for rescuing my family..."

100% of donations to this project go directlly to relocation costs so Americans in domestic violence crisis can come home. Thank you so much for believing in our mission!

You helped 5 military families in 2012!

Military family violence can be very complicated. Victims are afraid to report the abuse to the domestic violence advocates on military bases because they are afraid of having their confidentiality compromised.

Because of your generosity, we are able to offer them free, confidential help and help them navigate their situation without fear of their husband or their husband's commanding officer finding out.

Here is a quote from one victim you helped: "I didn't know what to do. Then I saw one of your posters hanging on a wall at base. I felt my prayers had been answered. It has been a long complicated process to get away from the abuse but I had you to help me. I can't possibly express in words how thankful I am... "

Thank you for believing in our mission!
