Building an inclusive Kansas City Community
Together with LGBTQ+ community members and allies, Pride Build is building an inclusive Kansas City community where every individual and family has the opportunity to obtain and maintain fair and equitable housing.
Pride Build supports LGBTQ+ homeowners by assisting in minor and critical repairs needed to maintain a safe and healthy place to live.

“Pride Build feels like family. I have been restoring my home for 5 years and having this work completed feels like a huge relief and gives me a sense of security.”
Together, we’ll break the bias!
For over three decades, Women Build has been breaking bias to empower women in creating a gender-equal world that is diverse, equitable and inclusive.
Women—particularly women of color—face disproportionate access to opportunity, which can affect their ability to find a decent place to live. Housing affordability is a crucial women’s issue.
Nearly 78% of Habitat homeowners are single mothers. A Habitat home provides the stability that a mother and her family need to succeed. After building and purchasing an affordable home through Habitat KC, women build strength, stability and self-reliance for themselves and their families.
Through construction experiences and educational programming, Women Build encourages volunteers and financial supporters to challenge stereotypes, fight all forms of inequality, and advocate for themselves and each other.
Meet Women Build homeowner, Sharae!
“Being a homeowner will give us stability and peace of mind, no longer having to worry about rent increases and infestations. I just want the benefits of paying my hard-earned money for something that I actually own.”
No experience is necessary to build with Women Build. Volunteers work under the guidance of construction professionals alongside other volunteers and future Habitat homeowners. Whether you are learning new skills or simply adding a few to your tool belt, this is a rewarding experience for all involved and improves the community that you share.

Serve those who served you.
Every day, more than 20% of Veterans struggle with homelessness, housing insecurity and unhealthy living conditions. Our Veterans deserve better and your donation helps ensure that every Kansas City Veteran has a safe place to call home.
According to the Housing Assistance Council (HAC), there are 108,958 veterans living in the Kansas City metro area, and over 20% of those individuals experience housing issues due to inadequate housing. Habitat KC is answering the call to help our brave service members by building and repairing homes, engaging veterans in volunteer opportunities, and educating communities.
