Building Your Legacy was founded to stand in the gap for fatherless boys. We provide one-on-one and group mentorship, monthly dinners, quarterly community service projects, academic development, career internships, and outdoor adventures. Building Your Legacy allows fatherless boys an opportunity to form surrogate father-son relationships with positive, responsible, and supportive mentors.
Our Mission: Ending Fatherlessness by standing in the gap providing surrogate father-son mentoring.
"Faith that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."
As we grew from a driveway with a few; we now are hosting monthly build projects, outdoor adventures, and community service events with many.
With this rapid growth, our need for outside support has grown to help provide the financial resources and “Man Power” to provide 1 on 1 mentoring for boys in Foster Care Homes and Schools. We are excited at the opportunities that continue to open up for us to partner with local Churches and Boys Foster Care Homes.
We have based our program on the teachings in Psalm 68:5 "A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling."
Why the Buffalo logo?
The Buffalo is one of the few animals that can sense when a storm is upon us and rather than running from “The Storm”, the Buffalo faces the storm and charges towards it and gets through it in half the time. Our motto is Be The Buffalo and face “The Storms” that you may be going through.
We want to thank all those that have supported our mission of Ending Fatherlessness.

There are many reasons for the strength of BYL, but the most important is the leadership and oversight of our Board of Directors. Our seven Board members are extraordinarily generous with their time, wisdom, and financial support, and they ensure that BYL remains committed to our mission and guiding principles.
