The Shelter Next Door

Sometimes women and their children come to our shelter with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Addressing this sudden and abrupt departure, our confidential shelter and supportive services are a safe place where women can make informed decisions about their future.

We provide safe accomodations for approximately 19 people per night, women and their children (boys and girls up to age 18, and even into adulthood when accompanying their mothers).  Two of our rooms are pet friendly, but if those are not available, we work with the Humane Society of Silicon Valley to provide temporary housing for pets.

When the shelter is full, our advocates can provide alternative accomodation options.

While the shelter houses women and children, we attempt to provide emergency hotel/motel to anyone who is at imminent risk and all services received by shelter residents, including case management and support groups.

HomeSafe is the only one of its kind anywhere in Santa Clara County, serving over 200 women and children a year. Founded in 1998 to address the need for long-term housing and support services for victims and their children, Next Door Solutions worked in partnerships with other community partners to build two sites, one in San Jose and one in Santa Clara. 

Managed by Charities Housing, a Community Housing Development Organization, HomeSafe offers 48 shared, affordable, permanent housing units for victims and their children.  Next Door Solutions provides transitional self-sufficiency services and Kids Club. While at HomeSafe, residents can participate in Next Door Solutions’ supportive intensive case management that helps them make gains in self-sufficiency, and children can engage in Kids Club services while the parent participates in group activities.
