I have been involved with No More Tears since its inception, first as a volunteer and now as Board Chair. Having worked with and at other domestic violence organizations, I can say with confidence that No More Tears is truly unique. Its founder, Somy Ali, personally coordinates all the services for victims and does so with an incredibly gentle touch and a warm smile. Incredibly, she does all this for no pay. A team of volunteers and interns helps ensure that victims receive all the help they need, making No More Tears a sort of "one stop shop." Services are individualized so that each person gets the precise help he or she needs, whether it be housing, legal advocacy, medical assistance, transportation, childcare, support for continued education, or other. To date, No More Tears has helped 237 victims of domestic violence and more than 600 children. As a true measure of the organization's success, only two survivors have returned to their abusers, a remarkable rate for domestic violence victims.
