Just like many successful bay area companies, Next Door Solutions started in someone’s garage simply as a hotline and refuge for battered women. It has since grown into Santa Clara County’s most comprehensive domestic violence service agency, offering services including shelter, food, clothing, transitional housing, crisis counseling, case management, legal advocacy, support groups, children and teen programs, and a Language Bank, which provides access to services in over 26 languages.
Next Door seeks “to end domestic violence in the moment and for all time.”
Next Door promotes safety for battered women and their children through emergency shelter; multiple points of entry for victims; individuals, system and institutional advocacy; crisis intervention; education for victims and the community; and the changing of community norms through prevention activities. For a closer glimpse into how this organization is making a difference, watch the quick video below.
Our grant of $7,500 given to Next Door Solutions earlier this year will go towards a program called A Window Between Worlds which helps reduce stress-induced ailments and risky behaviors that affect them.
