Vision and Mission



Sexual Assault Support and Help for Americans Abused Abroad (SASHAA) is a program of the Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center. SASHAA provides prevention and response to American victims of sexual based gender violence in foreign countries.

We envision a world with diversity and respect where all people live with their fundamental human rights intact including full autonomy over their own bodies.


The Americans Overseas Domestic Violence Crisis Center, AODVC, and the Sexual Assault Support & Help For Americans Abroad Program, SASHAA, works with abused Americans in foreign countries, both civilian and military populations, to provide domestic and sexual violence and child abuse advocacy, resources and tools so that they can navigate the complicated jurisdictional, legal & social international landscapes, to be able to live their lives free of abuse either in the foreign country or back in the United States.
