At Building Futures (dba Cornerstone) we believe that everyone deserves a safe place to call home. That's why all of our programs and services prioritize linking our clients with housing. In 1986, Building Futures opened its doors as an overnight winter relief shelter known as the San Leandro Women's Refuge. Today, Building Futures serves Alameda County and its residents as both a homeless services provider and a domestic violence services agency. Our emergency shelters, domestic violence services, street outreach, and housing programs have been designed to to help community members build safe and stable lives.
