The Silicon Valley Community Foundation donates to Next Door and the Domestic Violence Advocacy Consortium
Striving to support the essential needs of our county’s most vulnerable individuals, the Silicon Valley Community Foundation has awarded Next Door a $55,000 grant this year. As a lead agency of the Domestic Violence Advocacy Consortium, these funds will allow Next Door to provide emergency shelter, transitional housing, food, case management, and DV-specific supportive services for 177 homeless DV victims and their children. These victims and children are often fleeing violent, sometimes life-threatening, living situations, so they can move from hunger, homelessness and crisis to freedom and self-sufficiency. With the help of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation, Next Door and its partners will provide safe havens to victims and their children so they can begin to rebuild their lives to become safe, healthy, and productive residents of the County.
