Build Futures

Build Futures provides Emergency/Rapid Re-housing for homeless youth, ages 18 to 24, in Orange County. We take these homeless youth off the streets of Orange County and provide them with stable, safe housing and the services, resources and support needed to obtain and maintain employment, self-sufficiency and long-term independence.

 

When youth remain homeless, they are more at risk for physical abuse, sexual exploitation, substance abuse and involvement in the justice system. In addition, they are at a higher risk of becoming chronically homeless adults. Build Futures recognized the gaps in housing and support services for this population in Orange County and fills this gap. We are the safety net for these youth who are so vulnerable and at risk on the streets. We protect them from violence, crime, drugs, human trafficking and the psychological and physical horrors of surviving on the streets. Evidence based studies show that prompt placement in stable housing is the key to overcoming the barriers that perpetuate homelessness.[1]

 

Build Futures serves a population that has unique challenges when navigating the road to self-sufficiency. These challenges include: no “right to work” documentation, inability to pay for phone or transportation, no prior job experience, limited social or workplace skills, poor nutrition, no high school diploma or gaps in education, no experience with money or banking, legal issues, substance abuse, mental health and medical issues. We welcome the youth that others turn away. Clients receive the support they need because of our low threshold for entry into our program and our ability to provide immediate housing without wait lists and lengthy intake processes. With our support, these youth have the chance to become productive members of the community rather than falling into the perpetual cycle of homelessness and/or the criminal justice system.
