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!
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.

Stay safe!As our country remembers the 1 million lives lost to COVID-19, the Bay Area is experiencing a swell in COVID cases. Here in Alameda, cases have more than doubled in the last 4 weeks, and we know actual case rates are much higher with the widespread use of unreported at-home tests. Take precautions! Health officers urge wearing high-quality masks indoors (N95/KN95 or snug-fitting surgical masks) and make sure you are up-to-date on your vaccine. Individuals 50+ or 12+ and immunocompromised are eligible for a second booster and appointments are easy to make at local pharmacies. ... See MoreSee Less
