My name is Kevin O'Grady. I'm the Executive Director of Build Futures. We provide Emergency Housing for youth 18-24. We are a very low barrier program-that means we accept clients with very few restrictions. You have to be within 24 hours of homelessness, and be able to work.

We house youth and pay their rent while we prepare them for employment, and move them to a place where they are able to pay their own rent. We also provide bus passes so clients can get to workshops and job sites, clothes, and emergency food.

Homelessness is skyrocketing in Orange County. We need your help more than ever. Please make a donation to Build Futures and help us help Orange County's homeless youth.
