Building inclusivity: Habitat celebrates and reflects during Pride Month

June 1, 2024

At Habitat for Humanity of Oregon, we celebrate and honor the diverse identities and experiences that make our beautiful state vibrant and strong. This Pride Month, we reaffirm our commitment to building safe, inclusive homes for everyone by standing with our LGBTQ+ homeowners, volunteers, and supporters who help create a more inclusive and compassionate world.

Want to be a part? Ask your local Habitat if there are Pride Build programs and volunteer events in your area.

Affiliate-run Pride Builds bring together local LGBTQ+ community members, allies, and homeowners to work side-by-side on build sites, fostering love and acceptance in our communities. Through these events, we not only celebrate our LGBTQ+ homeowners, volunteers, and community members but also shed light on the decades of systemic discrimination that have barred LGBTQ+ families and individuals from homeownership, perpetuating biases and inequities that persist today.

As we continue to reflect on these realities, we invite you to learn more about housing affordability needs among the LGBTQ+ community.
