I love Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence - they are wonderful people who truly have the best interest at heart for the people they are helping. I did my internship at Next Door and I have nothing but positive things to say about this non-profit. It was a supportive work environment where the work always felt impactful. They all put so much effort into helping people in domestic violence situations. I learned so much about domestic violence and how to prevent it and how to help those experiencing it. If given the chance to help this organization, do it!

I volunteered at the transitional shelter in Santa Clara from 2002 to 2006. I started volunteering there because I wanted something that was a few hours once a week in the evenings. They have evening childcare programs that need volunteers, and it fit perfectly into my schedule. I stayed there for four years, until I moved, because I loved working with the kids so much. Because it is transitional housing and not emergency housing, you see these kids every week for up to three years. Showing up every week gives them much-needed consistency in their lives, and they greet you with their hugs and smiles. Most of the kids are preschool age, but ages can range from babies to high school. After a stressful day of work, it was always so much fun to play with the kids. I think I got more out of it than any of the kids! The staff is dedicated, but overworked, so they appreciate someone who brings their energy and ideas. I urge you to contact them even if they don't have any active postings!
