Crisis Services (24-hour hotline & shelter); Support Services (walk-in crisis counseling, community office helpline); Systems Advocacy (legal, immigration, social service help); Family Support Services (support groups, children & youth services); and Self Sufficiency (individual case management, financial literacy workshops, the computer lab, HomeSafe affordable housing sites in San Jose and Santa Clara).

Next Door believes victims of domestic violence know what’s in their best interest but need help understanding their options and the risks associated with each choice. Next Door works with several community partners to offer victims “one-stop shopping” for these options. Last fiscal year, Next Door and its Advocates helped over 12,000 victims and their children find safety, support, and empowerment.
