A letter from Esther
Our greatest challenge in the 49 years of operation as the largest provider of domestic violence services in Santa Clara County has been grappling with the effects of the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic. Victims have been sheltered in place with their abuser and even long-time survivors are being re-traumatized by being controlled and forced to quarantine.
Next Door Solutions is dealing with the effects of domestic violence on a daily basis in new and adapted ways. Abuse against women, men and members of the LGBTQIA community was considered by the CDC a pandemic long before the appearance of COVID-19. Since 1971, we have provided quality services that have moved survivors out of violence and abuse, into safety, stability and self-sufficiency.
