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!

"I would like to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability" - Ruth Bader Ginsburg

And you did. We honor your life work, #RBG, and we honor all women.

We honor the women that we serve, for their courage and resilience. You motivate us to continue to create a world that is free from domestic violence and homelessness.

Clean air shelter for our unhoused and vulnerable neighbors...Alameda's air remains very unhealthy and very unhealthy air is forecast again tomorrow, Saturday, September 12.

A Clean Air Shelter with KN95 masks being distributed to our most vulnerable populations is open at the Alameda Free Library Saturday, 9/12, from 10am to 5pm, and Sunday, 9/13, from 1-5pm.

Stay safe, stay indoors, and avoid physical activity during this period of dangerous air quality. Check out this video with a meteorologist at the Bay Area Air Quality Management District explaining what we can expect this weekend: youtu.be/hgTbMZyc78M
