Dustin is on the road to recovery because of you!

We heard from Dustin yesterday. He let us know how grateful he is for the donors that are paying for his counseling sessions. He has had three sessions so far. Here is part of an email we received from Dustin.

"it was so hard to talk about it at first. I felt that maybe I somehow did something to cause (name omitted) to sexually attack me. The counselor is helping me so much. I dont want to go through life afraid anymore."

We want to thank you so very much for caring about LGBTQ youth who have been victims of sexual assault abroad.

Spritzer is home with Dorothy because of you!

Because of your generosity, Spritzer is home with Dorothy after escaping domestic violence in Bolivia. It was touch and go for a while. Dorothy's abuser hid her American passport and she had to get a new passport issued by the American Embassy. But because of the Government shutdown, it took quite a while.

They are now home and safe living with Dorothy's parents. They have a big yard and Spritzer loves to chase the squirrels. Here is part of a note from Dorothy.

"I wake up every morning so grateful to the people that helped me get Spritzer away from the violence. Tell them how happy we are to be home, safe and sound."

Thank you also from the Pathways' staff for your generosity.

Noni and James are safe!

When Noni called us last month from New Zealand she was afraid for her life and the life of her son James.

Her husband had been violent for some time but now he began telling her how he was going to kill her and James and bury them so no one would ever find them. Noni was desperate to get home to the USA.

One of our case managers worked carefully with Noni on a safe escape plan. Luckily, Noni had access to their American passports that were locked in a safe. Her husband had changed the safe's code but Noni was able to figure it out.

Through a carefully executed plan, Noni and James were able to get out of the house, to the airport and on a flight home without her husband suspecting anything.

Todsy they are safe in a domestic violence shelter in the USA and we are working with Noni on longer term planning.

It is because of donors like you we are able to provide life-saving services to battered American mothers and their children abroad. Thank you!
