Your support makes a real difference!

Spotlight on…

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!
Want to help by donating move-in kits, holiday gifts, fundamental items like socks or sweats, or household supplies? Check out our wish lists.
“People Power” helps keep Building Futures’ programs and services vibrant and whole. Learn about our volunteer opportunities.

If it’s easier to make a cash donation towards a holiday gift card (we will purchase), or bring us a gift card, even better!

The Season of Thanks & Giving.

Held on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is a wonderful way to help those in need!

Building Futures will mark this special day — the biggest celebration of generosity and compassion — with a campaign for Move-In Kits for families.

We are housing more families than ever before! Will you pitch in by providing household supplies? Our Move-In Kits provide commonly needed items that will be so appreciated!

Thank you for helping families starting fresh, and for advancing Building Futures’ mission — one key at a time. We are really counting on community support this year, so please give on November 29th!
