Habitat for Humanity Tucson is partnering with the Rainbow Build Coalition to build our second Rainbow Home: a home sponsored and built by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Allied (LGBTQA) Community for the Garbarino Family. The 2012 Rainbow Home is in the Corazon Del Pueblo neighborhood located near I-10 and Craycroft and is part of a community of 60 Habitat homes.

Why a Rainbow Build?

Habitat for Humanity Tucson’s 2005 Rainbow Home was the first of its kind in Habitat International’s 1,300 U.S. affiliates and 100 countries worldwide. This partnership with Tucson’s LGBTQA community raises awareness on the social and economic justice issues of poverty housing and sexual orientation discrimination. A collaboration of this nature directly addresses Habitat’s mission to eliminate poverty housing in Southern Arizona and to create the visibility which makes affordable housing a matter of community conscience and action.
