Rainbow Build

Rainbow Build returns to Tucson for our fifth home in 2018-2019!

Everyone deserves a decent place to call home.

In 2005, Habitat for Humanity Tucson hosted the world’s first Rainbow Build—the first of Habitat International’s U.S. and international affiliates to do so! The idea spread like wildfire with Rainbow Builds now hosted in Washington D.C., Austin, Seattle, Ann Arbor, The Twin Cities, San Diego, and more. Tucson’s second Rainbow Build took place in 2012. We are scheduled for our fifth this year.

These projects engage neighborhoods, corporations, businesses, organizations, and the LGBTQA community in Habitat Tucson’s mission to build strength and stability through shelter.
