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.



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.


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.


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.


We count upon monetary support to keep our life-changing services strong. Your donation improves lives, families, and communities!
Want to help by donating 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.
