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


"Jazz it Up" 2015 was a Great Success!

We raised money to support our services and brought many new
supporters into the Building Futures family!

Thank you to all to attended, the event planning committee, honorary
hosts, ad purchasers, Venga Paella, Annie Sampson and her band, and
stellar sponsors Kaiser Permanente, Nancy and Mike Pretto,
and McDermott Costa.

We had fun and made a ton of new friends at the
106th San Leandro Cherry Festival!



We Love Our Community!

We recently joined Alameda author
Phil Canalin as he launched his third book,
Invisible Society Fables: Short Stories on Homelessness. Phil has announced that
online sales of the book will benefit
Building Futures!

created this powerful video (below) on the insidious effects of domestic violence, how to
recognize the signs, and the importance
of talking about it.
