Broward County Domestic Violence Agency – No More Tears

In this post, I wanted to draw attention to an organization in Broward County that provides services for victims of domestic violence. The organization, No More Tears was founded by Somy Ali, who continues to provide the large bulk of support and assistance for clients of the agency herself.

The agency is staffed entirely by volunteers, and has worked out partnerships with Dade and Broward County Divorce Attorneys, Immigration Attorneys, Counselors, Optometrists, Dentists and other providers in the area to provide a broad range of services to clients in Broward county as well as other parts of the state. It’s hard to do better justice to the work done by the organization than visiting the agency’s website, or listening to some of the interviews there of the organization’s founder, and I encourage you to do that – if you are looking to support No More Tears, or are in need of help.

The agency is fortunate to be supported by an active and accomplished board of directors. There is a fund-raiser coming up on October 6, 2011 at 5:30 p.m., hosted at The Bank Atlantic Corporate Center in Fort Lauderdale. You can find more information about the fund-raiser at No More Tears’ website, and also follow the organization on Facebook.

Although funding cuts have affected services in many areas, Broward County is fortunate to be served also by Women in Distress, a full service domestic violence center serving Broward County, as well as the Domestic Violence Unit at the Broward County Courthouse which can assist you in completing the paperwork to seek a Domestic Violence Restraining order. You can find these resources, as well as domestic violence services in Dade and Palm Beach Counties by following this link — domestic violence services.
