Support Groups & Kids Club

Next Door Solutions’ Support Groups build resilience and self esteem while helping to minimize the damaging long-term effects that prevent people from living healthy, productive lives.  Support Groups recognize the strengths of each participant and cultivate in clients the means to recognize and develop their own personal strengths. Support Groups are run on a drop-in basis.

Benefits of Attending a Support Group:

  • Reduce domestic violence survivors likelihood of participating in an abusive relationship in the future
  • Reduce the risk of children perpetuating the cycle of domestic violence
  • Develop client’s self-esteem and emotional resiliency
  • Cultivate client’s  parenting, coping, and communication skills

NOTE:  If you are attending a group at our Community Office for the first time, please arrive early to complete required paperwork.  Thank you!


Kids Club

Next Door Solutions provides thoughtful, engaging, and fun activities for children of women residing at the two HomeSafe sites and who attend Support Groups at the Community Office. Kids Club children’s programming provides engaging individual and group activities in a safe, inviting, and consistent environment that promotes positive play. It is a space for kids that have experienced/witnessed trauma to just be kids. Activities and subjects vary by site and can include art, reading and storytelling, homework help, health and nutrition, creative play, and fun – so that a kid can be a kid. Please refer to the calendar below for times that Kids Club is offered concurrently with Support Groups.
