Build Futures began in 2009 when Founder Kathy Tillotson identified a large gap in services and housing options for homeless youth ages 18 to 24 in Orange County. With a longstanding business background, Kathy developed an approach to addressing this need based on compassion and movement away from the streets and toward self-sufficiency.
