Help Gracie And Her Son Noah Escape Violence

A microproject by Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center
Safe at home
Safe at home

Because of your generosity, Gracie and Noah are home! It took longer than we had hoped, but they are safe back in the USA now. You helped provide their life-saving journey so they can now live in a home without violence. Here is a note from Gracie:

"There was a time when I didn't think I would make it out alive. The support you have given me over the phone, the airline flight home, the money for food, everything. You are like angels that came down from heaven for me. I will never forget how you helped us... "

I personally know how important your donations are to victims in need. If you are interested in learning more about why I founded the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center 15 years ago, you can read the first chapter of my memoir for free at

I can't thank you enough for chosing our project to donate to on Global Giving. Warmest wishes always, Paula
