24-hour, toll-free crisis line   
Our Mission: to build communities with underserved women and children where they  
are safely and supportively housed, free from homelessness and domestic violence.  

    Hundreds of community members, faith groups, schools, and service clubs came
    together to help make the holidays bright this year for those we serve. Because of
    this, 300 people who might have faced the season with feelings of dejection and
    sorrow experienced a warm and welcoming holiday. "I can't believe this-my children
    will be so excited." "Thank you for making my family Christmas a special one."
    "This means so much.... this is the only gift I will get this year." "I can't believe complete     strangers did this for me and my kids." Happy new year, everyone!

    We're seeking individuals with commitment and enthusiasm to help make our
    life-changing programs possible. Click here to view current openings.

    This winter, Building Futures, in partnership with the Interfaith Task Force/April
    Showers, will operate an overnight Warming Shelter when temperatures reach
    38 degrees or colder, or when rain is predicted. Click here for details on how to
    access help or ways you can help the Shelter.


"Little by little I got myself out of the nightmare. You helped
me get my life back. I'll never forget you all."

We're glad to share this message of thanks. After all, donations from caring community members makes possible life-changing services for 2,000 women and children each year.

Some have deep needs like mental health challenges, substance abuse issues, and unaddressed medical ailments. Others can regain their lives after a short shelter stay or help with a security deposit.

In the coming months, temperatures are predicted to dip below freezing. Tough times and budget cuts for safety net services mean your gift has never been more important.

It really does take a village. Please use the button below to make a simple online gift today-or make it a monthly pledge.
