NO MORE TEARS INC
August 10, 2010

In August of 2006, I had a woman knock at my door with blood dripping down her forehead and tears coming down her face. She asked me for help as she had been beaten badly by her husband. She could not speak English well at all to approach anyone for help and she knew that I could speak her language, thus decided to finally reach out to someone. That lady is now a registered nurse thanks to the help she received from No More Tears and above all, she is safe and free of abuse. No More Tears was initiated primarily to help women that were brought to the U.S. from various countries and then abused physically, sexually and verbally. Soon we started getting calls from not only immigrant women but also women born in the U.S. and decided to help everyone. Thus far, we have rescued 47 women and their children, all of whom were physically, sexually and verbally abused. We provide immediate care as we don't believe that a victim of domestic violence should be on a waiting list. We work with attorneys that are attentive very quickly to their cases and take immediate action required to free the women and children of abuse. We work with Nova Southeastern University's psychology department that provides free cognitive therapy to all the women we help. We are partners with Women in Distress that have had the same mission since 1973. We provide help 24 hours through our crisis hotline and IMMEDIATE help.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

That they provide IMMEDIATE help. THEY HAVE NO WAITING LISTS!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Kind, compassionate and can empathize with the survivors. There is no disconnect that you often see with big non-profits between the survivors and the board of directors. At No More Tears all are equally and all truly care!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save many more lives and build shelters in many more states all over the U.S.
