August Update

Thank you for your support and donations! We are very grateful for your assistance with danger to safety relocations for American domestic violence survivors abroad. From January, 2009 to July, 2009 the American Domestic Violence Crisis Line received 600 crisis calls and emails, assisted 149 families and 121 children from 46 countries.

In addition to direct services and ongoing case management, the American Domestic Violence Crisis Line provided relocation assistance for 3 families, legal consultations for 2 families, counseling for 1 family, and basic needs services for 3 families.

A client recently emailed Crisis Line Coordinator, Caitlin McGuan, stating: “When I say thank you, I hope you realize my thanks go out to you today for having played a role in making this transition back a smooth one for my son and I. I have been very blessed and I appreciate you and your help. That help came in many forms not to exclude a sincere smile, a good laugh and even friendship. Thank you.”

We would not be able to provide these services without your kindness and generosity. We sincerely thank you for your ongoing support!
