What We Do

The Next Door will equip women in crisis to develop lives of wholeness and hope.

The Next Door provides a continuum of evidence based services for women and their families impacted by addiction, mental illness, trauma and/or incarceration with Christ-centered compassionate care.

The Next Door is operated based on the following core values:

God has a plan and purpose for a woman’s life that is abundantly good. She doesn’t have to be defined by her past decisions. God loves. God forgives. Every woman can be whole and complete.
There is hope in any situation. Never give up. Help is only a request away!
We are building a healthy community in which our women are contributing members of society. We need one another. We care for one another.
We highly respect each woman that walks through our door. We believe she is capable of accomplishing amazing things. So many times, our women have lost self-respect. We know that it is impossible to respect others if a person does not respect herself. We begin from the very first meeting communicating respect to each woman.
We spur one another on with love and good deeds. We find a resident doing something good and celebrate it. For far too long, our residents have been given negative messages. We believe that our words and actions should build one another up.
We are a Christ-centered organization. We welcome all people. No one is forced to believe in Christ, but they will be cared for with Christ-centered principles.
