Emergency Shelter For American Mothers & Children

A microproject by Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center

You have helped 6 battered American mothers and their children so far this year in France, Germany, Italy and the UK. These mothers were desperate to escape their children and protect them from the abuse in their homes. Because of you, our case managers were able to get them into shelter while they worked with them for longer term solutions.

We raised enough money with this project to help another 30 battered Ameican mothers with shelter this summer, the time when most of the victims we help want to flee abuse, seek immediate shelter, then try to return to the USA.

Your donations provide the critical first step for a victim. We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to charitable giving. We are honored that you have chosen us and believe in our mission.

Best wishes, Paula
