Support Our Work!

Our Mission

To build communities with underserved individuals and families, where they are safely and supportively housed, free from homelessness and domestic violence.

HOMELESSNESS

HOMELESSNESS

No one should have to sleep in a car, park, or beside a freeway overpass. Since our founding, Building Futures has provided shelters for community members experiencing homelessness. As a housing first agency, our aim is to connect shelter residents to housing.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

In a devastating ripple effect, Domestic Violence affects individuals, families, and communities. Building Futures provides an array of services to help survivors heal, and to equip neighbors, workplaces, churches, and other allies to help.
HOUSING

HOUSING

A stable life begins with housing. Once housed, an individual or family can move forward, with the help of needed supports and services. Building Futures’ Housing Services include permanent supportive housing, rapid rehousing programs, housing navigation, and landlord advocacy.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

We count upon monetary support to keep our life-changing services strong. Your donation improves lives, families, and communities!

“We sold out of all our tiki masks and would like to donate $2,200 to Building Futures as a small gesture of our appreciation for the work you do for our community. We are a Bay Area restaurant group that was founded in Oakland and currently operates out of Emeryville. We are so happy to be able to help in our own small way.” – Raquel, Trader Vic’s.
