Pride Build brings together LGBTQ+ community, allies and homeowners

Habitat for Humanity partners with people of all backgrounds year-round to help build decent housing, and our affiliate-run Pride Builds bring together local members of the LGBTQ+ community, allies and homeowners to work side-by-side on the build site.

Want to be a part?

Ask your local Habitat if there are Pride Build programs and volunteer events in your area.

Through these events, we strive to not only celebrate our LGBTQ+ homeowners, volunteers and community members, but also to shed light on the decades of systemic discrimination that have barred LGBTQ+ families and individuals from homeownership, creating biases and inequities that exist today. 

Check out photos below from a recent Pride Build at Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity in Jonesboro, Georgia. 

The event was a collaboration between the affiliate and Spectrum, an Employee Resource Group at Habitat for Humanity International for LGBTQ+ employees and their allies that aims to raise awareness, promote inclusivity and actively support Habitat’s mission of providing decent housing for everyone.
