Dear Friends and Supporters of AODVC,
The first quarter of this year has been extremely busy. The phones are ringing off the hook and our case managers and international advocates are working tirelessly providing safety planning, advocacy, case management and connecting survivors with legal resources and counseling. Since January 1st, 2012, AODVC has received 325 crisis communications serving a total of 56 victims of domestic violence. In the past 10 years we have received 13,500 crisis calls, emails & live chats, serving 2,904 victims of domestic violence in the Americans overseas community.
In addition to crisis management, AODVC conducted outreach in Istanbul, Turkey, Diyarbakir, Turkey, and Rome, Italy during the first quarter of 2012. We connected with US Embassies, local women’s organizations, and American women’s clubs overseas.
As our outreach is translating into an increase in crisis calls, please donate to AODVC today to help a victim of domestic violence and their children escape horrific abuse. Thank you for your support.
