"What can I do to help?" my friend asked me. "I don't have a lot of extra time or money", she continued.

"What's your gift?" I asked her. "My gift?" she replied.

"Yes, your gift! You see these young adults appreciate everything that's done for them... from the shelter that Build Futures provides to their bus passes and hygiene bags. Everyone pitching in, either their time, treasures or talents is appreciated. It may feel like your contributions are just a "drop in the ocean"... but those drops add up. The individuals efforts from anyone who volunteers or gives financially MAKE it possible to do what we do at Build Futures" I shared.

"I get it", my friend stated. "Helping is helping no matter how small! I'm going to start clearing my schedule to donate some time and money! Because every little bit helps!"

"Yes it does my friend, yes it does!"

Build Futures helps hundreds of youth each year. Removing these young adults from the streets, providing housing, helping them find jobs and walking hand in hand with them on the road to self-sufficiently. It is a pure blessing to watch these individuals succeed each and everyday.

However the reality is, sometimes our clients hit a few road bumps along the way. They struggle adjusting to a new lifestyle ... Even if they know it's the best choice for them. Our job is to continually encourage them through each challenge.

Thank you for your continued support of Build Futures. Our youth appreciate your continued dedication to helping them succeed!

Build Futures is so appreciative of all the hard work the St. Bonaventure Justice and Peace Ministry did and to the St. Bonaventure parishioners for making the Build Futures Gift Card and Bus Pass drive so super successful! Over $10,000 in bus passes, gift cards and cash was raised in one weekend to house and help the homeless youth in our community.
