My entire career, including the position I am currently in, is in the Humanitarian/NGO sector. In all of the roles I've had, other than those in an emergency response, I've never seen staff and a CEO be as hands on as No More Tears. I personally believe with my expertise in this area, that this is indeed an asset. You have a team of passionate professionals that are motivated and they act as a small efficient team meeting their goal of saving abused women and families in the state of Florida. I should note, that I am also a Floridian, so I consider it a privilege to provide support in any way to a non-profit working in my home state. I should also note, that I have a personal belief from my experiences that supporting small NGOs makes way more of an impact, both on their organization and on their beneficiaries. If you are thinking about how to give to charity and make it efficient, give to a small motivated local NGO. No More Tears fits the bill and is fiscally responsible, ensuring a majority of their funds go towards their intended targets, the beneficiaries.
NMT does what other non profit organizations cannot do because of their size and other restrictions. Here's how it works: these folks and those of us who support them DO WHAT IT TAKES to save people's lives (literally). Women, men, children. If you are in an abusive situation, they can show up and help you do everything you need to do to get out: IMMEDIATE housing, medical care, legal support, education, child care, a ride to wherever you need to go. I have never known a group like it. I am OVER the multitude of non-profits trying to "do good." This group is totally different. DIRECT AND IMMEDIATE ASSISTANCE. Whatever it takes. I have supported them and occasionally worked with them for 5 years. A simple example of what anyone can do: last year I was moving. I texted them, and they came to my house, picked up my dishes and groceries, and they delivered it all THAT DAY to a woman with two small kids; they had found and rented an apartment for the family THAT DAY. They used my dishes and groceries that night. It's that good, real, and easy.
When you support No More Tears, you change lives. You change the life of a woman and her children not only by helping them stay away from th man who would harm them, but also you give the mom the skills she needs to begin again. Women who come through NMT learn how to stand on their own, exceeding even their own expectations. Make a difference and save a life or a family through your donation to this 501 (c) 3 organization!
