Seeking Safety At Home

Danger To Safety Relocation
Danger To Safety Relocation

Fourteen families are at home so far this year, in the USA, safe, away from the chaos of the violence they have suffered for years in foreign countries. And you helped!

It is hard to explain the desperation of a domestic violence victim wanting to return home to the USA for safety. Danger to Safety relocations take months, sometimes years, to orchestrate. Here is a quote from one of the battered mothers: "I think you were sent to me by God. I know I can never repay you for all you did for me and my baby to keep us safe, but one day, I will try. Thank you for all that you do."

We would like to thank you for supporting our program so families can seek safety at home!
