Statement from Next Door Solutions on Gender-Based Violence & Reproductive Justice

Next Door Solutions’ programs and services are based on a survivor-defined model; we recognize the survivor is the most knowledgeable person in regards to their life and all the circumstances surrounding and flowing through it. It also means that we don’t “tell” the survivor what they should or should not do. That includes their reproductive decision making.
