Give homeless children
the gift of gardening this summer!




Building Futures is delighted to partner with professional landscaper Susanna Burrows to create an immersive gardening project for the kids at San Leandro Shelter this summer! These resilient children are living in an emergency homeless shelter with their mothers. This is a chance for them to connect with the beauty and power of the earth through the magic of gardening.


Please help us raise funds to purchase planters, seeds, plant materials and gardening tools, as well as paint and other materials to make this urban garden a work of art.

Through this project, the children will learn about nature cycles,  grow their own food, create something beautiful that they can be proud of, and have lots of fun with their hands in the dirt!


Our goal is to raise $1,000 by the end of this month, so please give generously! 
Your support is greatly appreciated, and deductible to the fullest extent of the law.


The mission of Building Futures is to build communities with underserved families and individuals where they are safely housed, free from homelessness and family violence. We do this through an array of programs, including Emergency Shelters (Midway, San Leandro, Sister Me Home,  and Winter Warming Shelters), Domestic Violence Counseling, support, and education, and an array of Housing Services to get families and individuals permanently housed. 

Building Futures is a nonprofit operating in Alameda County.
