Review for Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

In the 1960's, I lived in Latin America for 5 years. During my stay, I met, on more than one occasion, American women with children who were desperate to be counseled on how to move through this point in their lives. To be able to reach out and find such a resource is reassuring. To be helped by it, is empowering.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

rejoicing with them in receiving top recognition by the Dept of Justice and Atty General Eric Holder during Americans Overseas Week.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated to their mission of providing resources for American Women living verseas in domestic violence crises.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

grow unfettered!

Ways to make it better...

life were perfect and they had all the resources they could possibly need. And we all know that life isn't perfect; that this is as good as it gets!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

getting the word out from recruiting and training crisis line volunteers to advertising its resources overseas.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this group deserves our support. It provides a much needed resource for unseen and unheard American women living abroad in domestic violence situations.

Role:  Donor & This group had a matching grant campaign. I donated shares of stock I 'd received many years ago. Upon their sale, the Crisis Line received the funds and I got a tax break.
