Success Story: AAI helps many types of victims with different needs: support, housing, healing, legal assistance and therapeutic/fun activities for children. One victim came to AZ from a shelter in Kentucky to find her toddler who was abducted by the child’s father, her abusive ex-husband. His new girlfriend’s sister messaged her on Facebook to tell her where she could pick up her daughter. She came immediately. Our staff helped get the court to uphold her temporary order from Kentucky then a deputy sheriff accompanied us to the home. It took two tries before she was able to hold her baby again. She cried tears of joy. She was able to retrieve her daughter with no incidence and be back on the bus to Kentucky in three days.

“You’re standing there in shock. What happened to my world? And these people will show up … and they make you feel like there’s somebody that really cares… Most of these people are volunteers – they don’t get paid. They literally dropped everything they had going on in their lives and came to my disaster. What just an absolutely wonderful thing that is! They just care about you and what’s going on with you.”
