Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, International Exchange

Mission: No More Tears is a 501 (C) 3 not-for-profit organization with a focus on helping immigrant women in the United States who are victims of spousal abuse. Many of these women are brought to America via arranged marriages and are scared to speak out against their oppressor due to the ramifications they will face in their home country or for the fear of being sent back. No More Tears works with these women in helping to provide them with legal counsel, financial assistance and psychotherapy. We help with these women in not only wiping away the tears, but also making sure that there are No More Tears!

'No More Tears' and Somy helped our program expand by providing riding scholarships for children who have Cerebral Palsy. HAPPI Farm is very fortunate and honored to be one of their non profit community partners.

I have been a monthly donor for No More Tears since 2011. This is one non-profit organization that I am truly proud to be a part of. The founder Somy Ali works tirelessly around the clock to assist survivors of domestic violence in leading an abuse-free life. She not only provides them with a roof over their heads, but she also ensures that every survivor is equipped with an education and a job in order to lead a self-sufficient life. The level of care and involvement seen at No More Tears is truly unparalleled, and this is in large part due to Somy's self-less devotion to a cause that means the world to her.
No More Tears has saved the lives of 346 adults and 717 children since it's inception in 2006. That amounts to a total of 1063 lives saved, and still counting. Somy needs the help of donors and supporters to continue her life-saving work, so please consider supporting her efforts any which way you can.

I was one of the victims who got help from No More Tears in early 2010. I still remember the day when I first met Somy. I was under a great shock when one day I received the divorce papers from my spouse after being abused. I had nobody to rely on as I was new to the country. No family, no real friends. Somy was the one who helped me. She had a very friendly smile on her face, and decided to work on my case after hearing my story. She helped me in every way she could. This organization is simply great. I now have moved on, have a beautiful family. All because of Somy Ali.

No More Tears is an amazing organization. They have helped me through the worst times of my life if it wasn't for them and their help I probably wouldn't be alive today. My daughter and I owe them our lives and because of them I am able to move forward with my life not having to look back at the terrible things that I have gone through. I myself and many others hold them in the highest regard they are such good people and have genuinely changed my life. I don't know how or when but one day I will repay them for all they have done for me and my daughter. They provided me with a place to live, transportation, therapy, food, clothing and so much more. With them I feel like I am part of more than an organization but part of a family. From my experience with them and all the challenges they have been there with me and continue to be at my side it brings tears to my eyes out of happiness that there are actually people out there that care for others as they have cared for me my daughter and even my dog.

I've been a volunteer with NMT for the past two years now and it has been the most rewarding thing I've ever done in my life. This organization has opened my eyes to many things; good, bad, and the realness of what happens in the homes of abused victims. I'm honored to be a part of this charity and I plan on being around to help in anyway I can for a really long time. The Survivors that NMT help have never gone back to their abuser because of the amazing services that NMT provides. To me that says a lot and we're obviously doing things right. The board members welcome me to the meetings with open arms. I have so much respect for each and everyone on the board. They all make me want to strive and be a better person. This charity is amazing and if anyone has the time to come volunteer and find out for yourself just how important NMT is to the community. Just the little things that people do can make a big difference!

This organization Has helped me and my son. I have become a stronger women because of the support form not only from the founder but the other victims as well. We have become a family. The founder thrives to help us women so we can become indapendant to be able to keep our child away from the violence that we so much do not deserve. Helping with everything from jobs, legal advice, counsling, clothes,shelter, etc. If they would put her in the governers office our children would be more protected from demestic violence.Somy Ali is our guardian angel.

The fouder happens to be a Movie Star ( Bollywood-India) and if she wanted, she could be earning lots and lots of money. The world will be a better place if we have more founders like Somy.

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.

The founder is passionate about changing the lives of women and children who are living in abusive homes by helping them to escape and start a new life no longer filled with pain and humiliation. I was so inspired by her that I knew I wanted to help in any way I could. NMT is a true non profit where all the donations, the gifts and a majority of the donated funds go directly to those in need. With over 200 lives saved so far, NMT is chaning lives every day.

I have been volunteering with No More Tears since January 2010 and I love that anything I do is appreciated -- from donating a bag of clothes to attending fundraisers to simply sending information on a grant that I see. The cause is so important and the volunteers literally open their homes to the survivors and help make their new lives as comforting as possible. I will definitely be helping as much as I can in the future as well.

I have volunteered at NMT for some years now, and I have found their services to be remarkable. They have helped women on local and national level. It is exciting to see the amount of admiration each and everyone, who has been helped by this prestigious organization has for the CEO, the Board and the Organization. It is organizations like NMT that create a safe place for many, who otherwise would never know what true safety and security means. I am honored to be a part of this esteemed organization, and I hope we continue to safe lives and make people's lives prosperous.

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.

"No More Tears"...Is a cause very dear to me on EVERY level..NMT has been instrumental in bringing the issue of Domestic Violence to where it can not be ignored, awareness to the unaware and HOPE to the hopeless.. Somy Ali, founder coupled with the NMT family address the atrocities of abuse to women not limited to our local community but WORLDWIDE...This is a serious REAL issue which has been given the attention it deserves by "No More Tears"..The violence does not simply hurt the victim..it damages innocent children who bare the emotional scars, undermines the very fiber of a moral community and is non discriminatory.. I and others who are desperately in need of HOPE urge you to learn more about the incredible story behind "No More Tears"..Somy Ali, and the work of the NMT family..Please also think hard..think how YOU can make a difference..Every bit helps..I'll roll quarters to give something to this phenomenal cause.. Thank you.. "No More Tears"..

NMT provides intervention services to victims of domestic abuse but what sticks out the most for me is that NMT survivors often come back to volunteer in order to help other victims which I believe is an integral part of healing. Also, the amount of care that Somy gives to the victim's children in truly heartwarming. No More Tears is an inspiring organization and should be recognized for it's compassionate work.

I just recently got involved with No More Tears and am currently working as a board member. Since I started to volunteer for the organization last year, I can say I have always been moved by the amount of sincere care and attention that is provided to survivors. Further, this organization is especially significant insofar as its members work to cultivate a family, where community members work together to bring about safe and fulfilling living conditions. No More Tears has helped over 200 victims, and continues to provide individualized, and attentive care making No More Tears truly remarkable as a needs-based organization committed to eradicating social injustices.

I can't even begin to share with you adequately enough how amazing this organization is and the amount of compassion that is given to these survivors and their children. The resources given are tailored to the needs of the individual and based off my personal interaction changes these women's lives, almost always for good. Somy is probably one of the most selfless individuals I've ever met, as well as everyone one involved. I'm truly privileged to be able to work with such amazing people as well an amazing organization.

NMT is an amazing organization. Started with the simple but inspirational belief that every victim of domestic violence needs help with more than just a shelter after a call, NMT has sought to save lives by helping the victims and their children through a holistic approach to their challenges -- food; apartment; language training; legal assistance with restraining orders, divorce and immigration; health care; and so many other areas meant to give victims a new start. For those victims with immigration issues, NMT recognizes they face an even tougher hurdle seeking help as abusers use fear of deportation as another weapon. What is truly amazing is the number of volunteers who help NMT -- without professional paid staff!
