Building Pride at Rainbow Build 2021

Posted by Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity on 4:00 PM on September 8, 2021

A few weeks ago, we had an amazing time in South St. Paul for Rainbow Build. Volunteers from US Bank, Andersen, and our volunteer community came together to raise awareness for issues involving affordable housing in the LGBTQ* community.

While building a new home for a local family, volunteers also showed their support for the LGBTQ community and Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity's mission.

Volunteers were joined on site by Ryan Berg, ConneQT Program Manager at Avenues for Youth. ConneQT is a creative, community-based response to LGBTQI+ youth homelessness. The goal of this program is to provide safer, culturally responsive housing within a youth's own community.

ConneQT supports LGBTQI+ identified youth ages 16-24. Youth and community members share a home and resources.
