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.

OUR FATHERS TABLE

 

A Christian response to homelessness.
OFT walks alongside our neighbors experiencing chronic homelessness, connecting them to agencies with the goal of ending their cycle of homelessness, ensuring their journey back to RESTORATION.
OFT is the light at the end of the tunnel!  Our Father's Table, OFT,  has a solution that breaks the cycle of chronic homelessness, 1 person at a time. Our work is important because it addresses homelessness at its cause knowing chronic homelessness is a symptom of a deeper-rooted problem.  OFT changes lives, by giving a hand up, not a hand out! Our work is cost effective & it does not create another program.  Our unique approach puts us in the center of their life as mentor, advocate & most importantly genuine friend giving unconditional friendship & guidance.  
 
The crisis of homelessness in OC has been front & center as the media exposed the day-to-day tragedies unfolding in the homeless community.  How can we forget the horrible story that was reported in March of 2018 when a family of 4 died in their mini-van that was also their home.  Then there is the heartbreak of our veterans, who make up 10% of our homeless population. These scenarios could have been avoided if we had more trained Care Navigators so we could expand our canvas area outside of the southern beach cities of OC. 
 
The numbers speak for themselves... In a 12-month period (2014-2015) in OC:
  • $299 million: Governmental & non-governmental entities spent on addressing homelessness. ($106 million spent on all types of housing for the homeless. $193 million spent on healthcare, criminal justice system, governmental & non-governmental agencies.)
  • $100,759: Average annual cost for 1 chronically homeless living on the street or in emergency shelters (OC United Way Cost Study on Homelessness, 2016)
But there is a successful & Christian solution! $12,385 is the cost for OFT to lift 1 chronically homeless person off the streets; a savings of $88,374 per person. OFT averages 30 lifted each  year, a savings of $2,651,220 per year.

South County Outreach

South County Outreach has worked since 1989 to assist South Orange County residents in need. Initially, that support focused on providing food. In 1991, the focus expanded to include homeless prevention, through the addition of a Rental and Utility Assistance program. The emphasis of the program was stabilization of housing for residents facing a shortfall in a monthly payment. In 1994, the first condominium was purchased to support a homeless family. The number of condominiums has grown to 17. Families in the Transitional Housing Program successfully move from homelessness to permanent housing through a short-term housing solution with emphasis on intensive case management. In 2014, South County Outreach expanded housing stabilization efforts with the addition of a Rapid Rehousing program. Rapid Rehousing allows South County Outreach to assist more households without the financial obligation of purchasing more housing inventory. The mission remains the same, "Preventing Hunger and Homelessness by Helping People Help Themselves."

Womens Transitional Living Center, Inc.

WTLC helps individuals and families escape the depths of domestic violence and exploitation.

Since 1976, our guiding principal has been to end the cycle of domestic violence and exploitation by providing comprehensive services grounded in evidence-based practices. Through a strengths-based, survivor-driven and trauma -informed holistic approach, the survivor’s perspective of their priorities establishes the plan to create a healthier and safer life.

WTLC’s programs are designed to be flexible and responsive to each survivor’s unique needs—each participant builds their recovery plan with their own priorities in mind. In this way, survivors from a range of backgrounds and experiences are able to receive tailored support that addresses their personal barriers to long-term stability. Survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking, as well as their children, receive services designed to meet their individual needs and adapt as necessary throughout their time with WTLC.

WTLC accepts populations that would normally struggle to find support including re-entry survivors coming out of the prison system, survivors with ongoing mental illness problems, survivors struggling with alcohol and drug addition, transgender survivors, emancipated youth and survivors with animal companions.

Last year, WTLC served over 9,000 children and adults through our housing, supportive services and prevention programs. These achievements were made possible by the generous support WTLC receives from individuals, families, corporations, foundations and government agencies.

Domestic violence and human trafficking are major public health crises, and community support and engagement is integral in WTLC’s work to create a world without violence.
