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.

Budget cuts to services for crime survivors + their children will cause homelessness, mental health crises, injuries, and deaths. We call on @gavinnewsom to approve the $103 million in funding allocated by the Legislature! @cagovernor, abuse services cannot be on the chopping block!

Day of action today! Call Governor Newsom's Office Directly at (916) 445-2841

At Building Futures alone, support for Sister Me Home
safe house is set to be cut by $125,000. Without
essential services, survivors will be forced to choose
between homelessness for themselves and their
children and staying with an abuser. Building Futures
has joined a large coalition demanding urgent action by
Governor Newsom, calling for this lifesaving support to
be retained. Contact Governor Newsom
