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.

20 families had a wonderful meal because of you!

Battered mothers that have fled with their children from overseas to escape abuse have nothing. Because of your generosity, twenty families had a wonderful holiday dinner.  This project was funded on Christmas eve,so these families were mailed gift cards so they could have a fabulous dinner in the New Year

This is so meaningful. What a wonderful way for them to begin their lives without abuse back home in the USA. For many, it may be one of the first times they were able to sit around a table eating a meal together without anger and violence.

We thank you so much for your kindness and generosity in helping victims trying to live their lives without abuse at home. The AODVC Team

Sandrine is getting counseling because of you!

Sandrine has been able to begin counseling because of you along with her partner Cynthia. What happened to them is horrific. Because you opened your heart they are getting the help they need to recover. It is hard to believe that people are still targeted because they are in the LGBTQ community.

Here is a note from Sandrine.

"Nothing more horrible has ever happened to me. And my dear Cynthia. Having to watch was just as horrible. The counseling is helping so much. The nightmares are happening less often. I hope one day they will be gone completely. We can't thank you enough for helping us."

We can't thank YOU enought for caring about Sandrine and Cynthia! The AODVC/SASHAA Team

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
