Summary


Mission StatementMORE »

Build Futures provides housing for homeless youth, ages 18-24 years old. 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.

Background Statement

Build Futures began in 2009 when our founder identified a large gap in services and housing options for homeless youth aged 18-24 in Orange County, California.  Build Futures uses a structured, step-by-step program of intervention tailored to each client and one-on-one supportive relationships to connect homeless youth to the services and support they need for stable housing, employment, self-sufficiency and long-term independence. A critical component of the program is working collaboratively with existing non-profits, community services, faith based organizations, educations institutions and volunteers to close the gap in the service continuum and prevent duplication of existing services. Build Futures compliments, enhances and extends these existing services to provide complete case management and wraparound support specific to each youth's needs.
 
 Build Futures continues to be a grassroots organization meeting the youth we serve on the street and taking them off the street to stable housing and self-sufficiency.

Impact Statement

 Client Impact: 

2016 Results:
  • Build Futures provided tangible assistance to 250 homeless youth.
  • Build Futures provided housing and full case management to 125 homeless youth who were living on the streets of Orange County (an increase of 15% over 2015).
  • Of the 125 youth housed, 75% obtained jobs and became self-sufficient and 10% are still in the process. Others entered programs for mental health and went to live with relatives. Some returned to the street but our program is always open to them.
 
2017 Goals:
  •  Build Futures expects to house at least 20% more homeless youth in 2017. 
  • Hire a full-time case manager to work with the increasing number of homeless youth we serve.
  •  More partnerships and collaborations will be formed with job, mental health and substance abuse organizations.
  •  Housing resources inventory will be increased to accommodate the increasing number of youth being referred.
  •  The percentage of youth obtaining jobs will increase 5%.
 
 


Needs Statement

Needs for 2019

  • Volunteers and mentors.  We need volunteers to help run our organization.  The clients who come to us have rarely had a suitable role model.  Having a mentor in their lives could be key to their futures and growth and success. 
  •  $40,000 to pay housing costs to increase the number of homeless youth we can house and prepare for jobs.   Current average housing cost is $600 per month for three months to provide optimum outcomes.
  • We pay for all of clients bus passes.  These bus passes allow the clients to come to the office, attend workshops, and provide transportation for job interviews.  We spend about $7000.00 on bus passes each month and any gift of bus passes is a tremendous help to Build Futures.
  • Add 5 skilled, pro-bono volunteers in key functional areas including PR/Marketing, WordPress, social media, administration and therapists.  Add five mentors willing to commit for at least a year to work with one or more youth.
  • Increased partnerships with potential employers, private low cost housing providers, businesses and faith based organizations with a goal of 10 new partnerships by the end of the year related to affordable housing and employment.


CEO Statement

In 2016, 95% of all donations went directly to serving our clients' needs. With limited fixed costs and overhead, Build Futures has one of the best return on investments or dollar donated in the county and a true impact on homeless youth lives with each dollar donated.

We take kids referred to us and put them in housing within 24 hours, often the same day.  If they say they want to get a job and work at getting off the street, we give them a chance to show it.  We meet with them wherever they are.  Since we received an increase of 40% more homeless youth referred to us this year and still work with our past clients, the demand for our services continues to increase.

 

Our first priority is getting kids off the street into safe housing. With the rising drug problem and human trafficking in the county we think it is really important to get these kids off the street as quickly as possible. 

 


Board Chair Statement

Build Futures has had incredible success in continuing to serve all the clients who are referred to us and want to work and get off the streets.  We provide housing the same day to those coming to us for help who want to work and are able to work.
 
I do not believe it is acceptable to allow these youth to be on the streets with no safe place to sleep and no hope.  With the rising drug problem, dangers of street life and human trafficking in the county, we feel it is really important to get these kids off the street as quickly as possible and safe. We meet with the youth wherever they are. With a significant lack of affordable housing in Orange County, finding these youth a place to live requires a personalized approach. We pay their rent and support them to obtain employment so they can pay their own rent as soon as possible. Housing without employment is not sustainable. 
 
A study by Martha Burt of Urban Institute found that the longer a youth or young adult is homeless, the higher the risk that he or she will become a chronically homeless adult. Homelessness has serious consequences and long-term implications for young adults and communities.
  • HUD Secretary Donovan in March 2012 stated it costs the public $40,000 for a homeless person to be on the streets because of the expenses of emergency room visits, jail time and hospital stays. 
  • A 2009 report on the cost of housing and homelessness in Los Angeles showed the typical cost for residents in supportive housing is $605 a month but if they remain homeless it is $2,897 a month, five times greater.
  • The unemployment rate for youth 16 to 24 is the highest in history and it is much worse for those who are homeless. Without employment many homeless youth have no choice but to turn to drugs and crime. 
  • The effect on the community is steep as incarceration alone costs Californians $50,000+ per inmate annually and over 60% of ex-offenders re-offend within three years (California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, 2010).
 
In Orange County, one of the richest in the country we have 30,542 homeless students in our public schools, an increase of 7% in one year.  I am appalled by this.  My hope is this is only a matter of raising awareness and not indifference.
 
This continues to be the challenge, to raise awareness of the problem and funds for housing the homeless youth and recruit those who want to work as mentors. Mentors help take this vulnerable and under served population off the street and allow them to achieve their incredible potential and a better future.  These youth are the future of our community.  Build Futures continues to advocate and educate on the need for helping these youth. With the growing numbers of homeless youth,  the challenge is to raise enough funds to continue to house all the youth referred to Build Futures.  We feel as we raise awareness within the community we will be able to raise the funds needed to continue to house these abandoned youth.

Programs


Emergency/Rapid Rehousing

Build Futures houses homeless youth first, paying rent until suitable employment can be found for them to pay their own rent. Youth may be housed in shared housing, sober living or rented rooms as appropriate for the individual situation. Rent is paid as long as the client is actively participating in the Build Futures' Steps to Success program.
 
With the rising drug problem, dangers of street life and human trafficking in the county, we feel it is really important to get these kids off the street as quickly as possible and safe. We meet with the youth wherever they are. With a significant lack of affordable housing in Orange County, finding these youth a place to live requires a personalized approach. We pay their rent and support them to obtain employment so they can pay their own rent as soon as possible. Housing without employment is not sustainable.  We work closely with over 40 houses to make immediate housing placements.
Budget  $70,000.00
Category  Housing, General/Other Housing Expense Assistance
Population Served Homeless Unemployed, Underemployed, Dislocated Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent
Program Short-Term Success  Short-term, young adults are removed from the street and given an appropriate living situation while also being given the resources to remove the barriers to self-sufficiency.  They are helped to obtain and maintain employment to become independent and pay their own rent and expenses and remain stably housed.
Program Long-Term Success  Youth completing the Build Futures Steps to Success have the tools to become and remain employed, housed and self-sufficient. Long term success will mean the youth stay in stable housing for at least a year and continue to earn enough to pay their rent and move toward earning a living wage.
Program Success Monitored By  Salesforce and Quickbooks monitor the costs of housing and the success of each client.  Our Salesforce client management system tracks client's progress and provides outcome measurement and reporting.
Examples of Program Success   
Build Futures housed 48 youth last year, 24 were girls and 24 were boys.  To date, 28 have stayed off he street, 22 are employed (one heroin addict and one alcoholic, both clean and sober), 4 in mental health programs, one hospitalized with a chronic illness and one receiving SSI and going to school.  This year we have many more homeless girls and have already paid for housing for 20 homeless youth, 12 girls and 8 boys. Build Futures fills a gap in services for these youth and is one of the only nonprofits housing youth this age. We are their safety net. The number of homeless youth is increasing and programs and services for these youth are decreasing.

Employment services

Build Futures helps youth to obtain what they need for employment which includes: getting their "right to work" documentation, transportation for job search, phone to receive employer calls, basic needs, referrals to jobs, staffing agencies and job programs, job skill training and job placement, interview clothes and all things needed to obtain employment.
 
Homeless youth face many obstacles to employment typically not experienced by other unemployed workers, they include:
no permanent address; no strong adult guidance or support system; no 'right to work" documentation; inability to pay for transportation or a cell phone; no previous job experience; limited or no social and workplace skills; being stigmatized for being homeless; poor nutrition and limited access to food; no high school diploma or GED and gaps in education; no experience with money, a bank account, etc; legal issues; and depression or other mental health or medical issues.
 
Budget  $20,000.00
Category  Employment, General/Other Employment, General/Other
Population Served Adults At-Risk Populations Adolescents Only (13-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Homeless youth will be housed and employed.
Program Long-Term Success  Homeless youth will have stable housing, employment and be self-sufficient.
Program Success Monitored By 
Our salesforce database is used for outcome measurement and tracking.We will track the steps to successfull employment using our "Steps to Success" program and Salesforce client management system.
 
Determining the number of youth obtaining employment and remaining stably housed will be a key measure of success.
 
 
Examples of Program Success 

Of the youth we housed in 2013, to date 28 stayed off the street and 22 have obtained employment, five are in mental health programs, one is receiving SSI and one is hospitalized with a chronic illness.  Of the additional 98 homeless youth referred to us, many have gotten employment with our help and are stably housed.



Case management and mentoring

Extensive initial client specific one on one case management and mentoring in the first one or two months and long term follow up one on one case management and mentoring is provided.
Youth this age have unique requirements, contrary to popular belief; they are not yet adults.  Young people disproportionately suffer from serious health, behavioral and emotional problems and homeless youth suffer to a higher degree.  Using national evidence-informed best practices,  our program focuses on boosting the "protective factors" around homeless youth.  Protective factors are the positive influences that reduce the effects of stressful life events on young people, increase their ability to make good decisions and promote the social and emotional competence that will help them thrive. To provide "protective factors" we first meet their immediate needs (food, clothing, shelter, etc.). Then we work on improving the behavioral, psychological and physical health of our youth.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Budget  60% of time
Category  Human Services, General/Other Case Management
Population Served Homeless At-Risk Populations Females
Program Short-Term Success  The short term success will be stable housing and employment to achieve self-sufficiency. 
Program Long-Term Success  Our homeless youth become independent contributing members of our community earning a living wage and are healthy in mind and body. In addition, they are equipped with the life skills and tools necessary to deal with the many ups and downs of life.
Program Success Monitored By  Build Futures has implemented a client management system in our state of the art Salesforce database.  Using our "Steps to Success" we track the progress of each client using case notes and communicaton with the youth, community partners and volunteers.  
Examples of Program Success  In 2014, we have helped 60 homeless youth referred to us. Twenty of these youth we have housed;  12 girls and 8 boys, 50% more girls.  Of the 12 girls, 7 are working, 1 is in a job program (two of the girls were heroin addicts who we connected to medical detox at Hoag Hospital) and we now pay for them to live in sober living houses until they receive their first paychecks to pay their own rent.  One is in a home for pregnant women, one is pregnant and stably housed with her husband, one, who was a heroin addict, is in a residential rehab faciliyt and we will pay for her to go to a sober living house when she is done and help her find employment.  Finally, one is in a mental health program we worked to place her in and only one has returned to the street.  Nine of the girls are 18 to 21 years old.

CEO Comments

With no year round emergency shelter except the Salvation Army for men, Build Futures is providing housing for this vulnerable population and the services and support they need to stay off the street. Build Futures addresses the need for emergency shelter for this population by housing these youth as fast as possible with the goal of placing them in housing the same day of contact. We put them in a safe, stable place away from drugs, sexual exploitation, crime and the stress and anxiety of being on the street.

 In Orange County, the Dept. of Education statistics show there are 5,400 homeless high school students. When they turn eighteen many will join the thousands of currently homeless living on the streets of Orange County. The amount of homeless OC students in grades K-12 is 30,542, an increase of 7% in one year.

 Developmentally, youth this age have unique requirements, contrary to popular belief, they are not yet adults.  Young people disproportionately suffer from serious health, behavioral, and emotional problems.  Using national evidence-informed practices derived from the best available research and professional expertise, our program focuses on boosting the "protective factors" around homeless youth.

To address these obstacles and provide “protective factors” we have developed our “Steps to Success” model (see attached), which is a systematic approach to moving youth from the street to self-sufficiency. 

A 2009 report on the cost of housing and homelessness in Los Angeles showed the typical cost for residents in supportive housing is $605 a month but if they remain homeless, it is $2,897 a month, five times greater.

Homeless youth face a combination of obstacles to employment typically not experienced by other unemployed workers. A single homeless youth may have to overcome many if not all of the following:

·         No permanent residence;

·         No strong adult guidance or support system;

·         No “right to work” documentation;

·         Inability to pay for transportation or cell phones;

·         No previous job experience;

·         Limited or no social and workplace skills;

·         Being stigmatized for being homeless;

·         Poor nutrition and limited access to food;

·         No high school education;

·         No experience with money, a bank account, etc.;

·         Legal issues;

·         Depression or other mental health issues;

CEO Comments

Build Futures is wholly funded by individual donors and foundations.  We do not receive any government funding.  As a result we are limited in the amount of revenue we can  generate.  The services we provide cost Build Futures $800 a month.  As a result of the lack of government funding, we are limited in the young adults we can house and put through our work and job experience program.
