Need Two Case Managers for 500 Victims in 2014


Each of our case managers carry a case load of 250 American victims of domestic violence and sexual assault annually. They coordinate life saving services to victims, providing informed, compassionate responses to victims in crisis with the goal of getting these families to safety, either back in the USA or in the foreign country. From legal services, to housing, to danger-to-safety relocation, they are the key to getting the victims, their children and their pets to a safe home, away from abuse

The US Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, May 2013, Consular Affairs By The Numbers, states that 7.6 million Americans live overseas and 68 million travel overseas annually. Extrapolating CDC figures for female victimization in the USA annually, victimization for these populations are 45,000 cases of domestic violence and 7,000 cases of sexual assault of Americans living overseas. For Americans traveling overseas, over 400,000 domestic violence and 68,000 sexual assaults occur.


500 victims will receive intensive case management enabling them to leave abusive home with their children and pets at an average cost of $144 per family. Case managers help victims navigate the complicated foreign legal, social and medical landscapes in the foreign country while providing a continuum of coordinated care. Case managers are the cornerstone of services for victims, advocating to American Embassies or Consulates, domestic violence and sexual assault programs.

Long-Term Impact

This program aims to not only get 500 victims, their children and pets to safety, but to stop the generational cycle of violence, empowering victims to live their lives free of abuse.
