Futures Without Violence
For more than 30 years, FUTURES has been providing groundbreaking programs, policies, and campaigns that empower individuals and organizations working to end violence against women and children around the world.
Providing leadership from offices in San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Boston, we’ve established a state-of-the-art Center for Leadership and Action in the Presidio of San Francisco to foster ongoing dialogue about gender-based violence and child abuse.
Striving to reach new audiences and transform social norms, we train professionals such as doctors, nurses, judges, and athletic coaches on improving responses to violence and abuse. We also work with advocates, policy makers, and others to build sustainable community leadership and educate people everywhere about the importance of respect and healthy relationships.
Our vision is a future without violence that provides education, safety, justice, and hope.
Paws With A Cause®
The mission of Paws With A Cause® is to enhance the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities nationally through custom-trained Assistance Dogs. PAWS® increases awareness of the rights and roles of Assistance Dog Teams through education and advocacy.
Since 1979, more than 2,600 Assistance Dogs have been placed with clients nationwide. PAWS® trains Hearing Dogs, Service Dogs, Seizure Response Dogs and Service Dogs for Children with Autism. The sponsorship to breed or rescue, raise, train, place an Assistance Dog and provide ongoing team support exceeds $30,000.
PAWS® clients do not pay to apply for or to receive their Assistance Dogs. There is no insurance or government funding available to sponsor Assistance Dogs. PAWS® funding comes mostly from individual donations nationwide. For this reason, we are very grateful to organizations like Psychic Source that choose to support our mission by raising funds for Paws With A Cause®.
National Center for Housing & Child Welfare
The National Center for Housing & Child Welfare (NCHCW) bridges the gap between housing resources and child welfare agencies in order to improve the lives of America's most economically disadvantaged youth and families. NCHCW is dedicated to ensuring that no child ever enters foster care or remains trapped in the system as a consequence of their family's inability to provide safe, decent, affordable housing. We are equally committed to guaranteeing that each young person who ages out of foster care has access to permanent housing and the connections they need to successfully enter adulthood.
