Help Stop Military Family Violence

Project Report | Dec 16, 2016
You helped Molly escape violence!

By Paula Lucas | Founder & Executive Director

Molly called us from Spain. Her husband is a military officer and became so abusive she has often feared for her life but was afraid to seek help because she thought no one would believe her. In public her husband was charming, gregarious and well liked in the military community.

After one particularly violent episode, Molly called our hotline. She worked with our case manager Fonda for several weeks. Molly, like so many military wives, did not want her husband to lose his job, but she knew she needed to flee to stop the abuse.

In November we were able to get Molly out of Spain and back home to the USA. She is staying with friends and is currenly in counseling.

We can't thank you enough for supporting military wives like Molly. We would not be able to do the work we do without you! The AODVC Team
