Danger-to-Safety Relocation for DV Survivors

Safe and sound at home because of you!

When Alisah moved overseas with her husband James she never thought she would need help. As James became more and more violent she looked desperately for resources. In April of this year Alisah found the Danger to Safety Relocation for DV Survivors on GlobalGiving and called us. Within six weeks we were able to get Alisah and her six month old daughter home, thanks to your generous donations.

Here is a note from Alisah: I know you don't know me but I want to thank you for helping me. I didn't think anyone cared and I was left on my own to escape. But here I am safe back in the USA with my daughter because of you. I thank you with all my heart.
