My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center, Portland, OR, USA
As a victim of domestic violence, I summoned the courage to leave my home with my 2 year old child. I had no job, little money, a car, some toys, and a very selfless female friend who sheltered us for months until I could get back on my feet. AODVCC is such a great organization, offering resources when someone is at a very vulnerable and low point. I was in the U.S. when it happened to us. I cannot imagine what it must be like for women and their families who are in a foreign country. A place where they may not speak the language, hold little or no currency, don't understand the laws, and need papers to leave. AODVCC is that resource. I was lucky to have a friend who held a hand out to us. AODVCC is that friendly place women can go for help.
