Housing Solutions

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.

The HomeSafes in San Jose and Santa Clara:  This program is the only one of its kind anywhere in Santa Clara County. HomeSafe was formed in 1998 to address the need for long-term housing and support services for victims and their children. Next Door Solutions is the lead fiscal agent and service provider and Charities Housing manages the site.Next Door Solutions currently operates two HomeSafe transitional housing facilities, one located in San Jose and one in Santa Clara.  The two HomeSafe sites provide 48 shared housing units for victims and their children. Families can stay permanently while receiving supportive services such as counseling, case management and children’s services. Last year, our HomeSafes served over 200 women and children.
