Record number of Danger-to Safety relocations

We have reached a record number of services provided at all levels at the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center this year.

We are hoping this means more American domestic violence victims in foreign countries are finding the strength and courage to leave abusive relationships for the sake of themselves and their children, despite the tremendous obstacles they must overcome in order to be safe.

The dedicated and skilled individuals that make up our team, and the donors who believe in our mission, are the key to our success. From January 1st to June 30th the organization has received 1252 crisis calls, emails & live chats while assisting 287 families in 56 countries.

We assisted nine families with danger to safety relocation back to the USA. Here is a quote from one of the mothers we helped:

“ You are probably my only hope...a lifeline to someone who has increasingly felt as though she's drowning. Thanks for all you have done.  I value what you did for me.”

Thank you for your continued support! We have included a photo of our staff in this e-newsletter so you can see the faces that provide life-saving services to victims overseas. Warmest wishes, Paula
