50 years of Next Door Solutions | 1971-2021

In 1971, Bea Robinson Mendez, a victim of domestic violence, had little in the way of legal support, community advocacy, or a safe place to go. She recognized the lack of services to address the safety and unique needs of victims of domestic violence and their children. She rallied a group of friends, Latinas, and established a hotline number out of her garage, with each of the group members taking turns fielding the calls and providing information and support.
