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!

Timeline PhotosWe are sickened by another “accidental” shooting death of an unarmed African American person for a minor traffic stop. Daunte Wright was 20 years old. His death brings fresh pain to the other “accidental” deaths - Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Eric Garner, Oscar Grant, and countless others unarmed yet met with lethal force for living while Black. The pain is intense and unrelenting with news cycle after news cycle filled with stories of harm to our BIPOC community. We stand in grief, in solidarity, and in outrage at a system that is broken. #blacklivesmatter ... See MoreSee Less
