The Shelter Next Door: A 24/7 emergency shelter that provides safe housing and crisis counseling for women and their children. Sometimes women and their children come to our Shelter with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Addressing this sudden and abrupt departure, our Shelter seeks to create a safe place for women and their children by providing confidential shelter and supportive services that allow them to make informed decisions about their future.
The shelter provides safety for approximately 22 people per night and is one of the few shelters accepting boys up to age 18, and into adulthood, when accompanying their moms. If the shelter is full, no one is turned away without an alternative housing solution.

HomeSafe is the only one of its kind anywhere in Santa Clara County. Founded in 1998 to address the need for long-term housing and support services for victims and their children, Next Door Solutions worked in partnerships with other community partners to build these two sites. Next Door Solutions provides transitional self-sufficiency services and Kids Club to HomeSafe residents and Charities Housing, a Community Housing Development Organization, manages the communities. Located in San Jose and in Santa Clara, the two sites provide a total of 48 shared, affordable, permanent housing units for victims and their children. While at HomeSafe, residents can participate in Next Door Solutions’ supportive intensive case management that helps them make gains in self-sufficiency, and children can engage in Kids Club services while the parent participates in group activities. Last year, HomeSafe served more than 200 women and children.
