Help Rescue 500 Battered Women And Their Children

A success because of you!

As you know the cases of American women and their children being battered overseas are very complicated and can take a long time. After two years of working with one family, Tamra and her two sons, a judge allowed Tamra to stay in the USA with her sons and did not force them to return overseas. The judge put the safety of her and her sons first, not returning them to horrific abuse in the foreign country.

This is a case where we were able to provide wraparound services because of your generous donation. It took two years but now this family will be safe forever from abuse.

Here is a note from Tamra: Amazing! I will never, ever forget what you have done for us. You saved our lives. God bless you.
