Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence

  • Community List
  • Service Address 234 East Gish Rd Suite 200, San Jose CA 95112

Domestic violence crosses all socio-economic, ethnic and religious boundaries and affects every part of the lives damaged by it. Although the problem is complex, Next Door believes the solutions must be client-centered, community based, and engage diverse groups of community leaders, volunteers, donors, advocates and clients in order to create real solutions that eradicate domestic violence for good. Next Door believes in peace and social justice for all and operates every day knowing that peace in the community begins with peace in the home.

Next Door provides innovative prevention and intervention services to diverse ethnic and low-income families in Santa Clara County, California, the majority of them coming from San Jose. Next Door sees the issue of domestic violence as an intergenerational cycle of transmission–some children of victims and batterers tend to exhibit high-risk behaviors that enable the transmission of self-destruction and violence to continue. By addressing domestic violence from this perspective, Next Door both helps rebuilds the lives affected by present traumas while preventing further violence for future generations.
