Help 30 Victims Call The Crisis Center Every Month


American victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in a foreign country are afraid, vulnerable and unaware of their options for safe law enforcement reporting or safe medical treatment. They may feel too ashamed to tell their friends, family, work colleagues or school counselor. By contributing to this project, we will be able to provide 30 victims per month with a minimum of one hour of advocacy, case management and compassionate informed confidential response internationally toll free.

An estimated 7.6 million Americans live overseas and another 65 million travel overseas annually. Unfortunately, when a sexual assault or incident of domestic violence occurs, the victim can feel alone, afraid and ashamed. They may not know if it is safe to report to law enforcement, or where to get safe, confidential medical care, or may not be able to access these services because they do not speak the language of the foreign country. They may just suffer silently, too afraid to get help.


By calling our crisis center, internationally toll free, we can provide informed, compassionate and confidential response 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They will talk to a trained advocate or case manager that can help them navigate their surroundings, get help, bring a language translator onto the phone so they can access law enforcement or medical attention, and provide support during the worst moment of their lives.

Long-Term Impact

Sexual assault and domestic violence victims need immediate support and help to work through the initial trauma and to get safe. By speaking to one of our advocates or case managers, victims have a better chance of receiving appropriate medial care which in the long run may help them overcome post traumatic stress disorder, depression or other trauma related health concerns. With this program we can help 360 victims per year with one hour of crisis center support.
