Our Mission: to build communities with underserved women and children where they  
are safely and supportively housed, free from homelessness and domestic violence.  


February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. Building Futures leads the San Leandro and Alameda Domestic Violence Task Forces. These task forces are year-round outreach initiatives designed to ensure community members know how to recognize and prevent domestic violence; where to seek help and how to intervene.

The San Leandro and Alameda Task Forces convene local service providers, elected officials, municipal representatives and community- and faith leaders to assess needs and “connect the dots” between needs and available services.

In San Leandro, look for our 23’ boulevard banner over East 14th Street, bus benches around town, and a prominent lighted poster at Bayfair Mall. We’re collaborating with the San Leandro Unified School District on a student-led Teen Dating Violence Prevention-themed event to be held February 25th at the Barbara Lee Center from 4 to 5:30 pm. Building Futures and teen leaders will also be on hand at the February 16th San Leandro City Council meeting to accept a proclamation from Mayor Pauline Cutter declaring February to be Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month in the city. 

In Alameda on February 5th, Alameda Family Services and students from Alameda High School’s YEAH group will host high energy Teen Dating Violence Prevention-themed lunchtime activities on campus YEAH will make a presentation to Alameda Youth Collaborative on February 17th. Our boulevard banner will hang over Park Street fromFebruary 2nd through the 16th. Teens and members of the Alameda Domestic Violence Task Force will attend the February 16th City Council meeting, where Mayor Trish Spencer will present a proclamation declaring February Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month in Alameda.
