We believe in helping find a safe and secure place to call home for those in the most challenging circumstances — from victims of natural disasters to those who have been neglected or abused, and veterans looking to rebuild their lives.
At KB Home, everything we do is Built on Relationships. That’s why we believe that every action we take — from how we care for our communities to how we safeguard the planet, has the potential to make a positive impact for everyone. Our KB Cares program is one way we put that ideal into action.
A roof over every head
FOCUS: SUSTAINABILITY & ENVIRONMENT
We believe that when creating new homes and communities, it’s not just our responsibility to limit our footprint on the planet. We strive to ensure that our physical environment remains clean and beautiful for the enjoyment of everyone, for generations to come.
We’re not just building homes, we’re creating communities. That’s why we invest in the well-being of those who live in the areas where we build, which means cultivating social connections and caring for people in need.
FOCUS: CONSTRUCTION SKILLS AND EMPLOYMENT
A foundation for the next generation
We’re dedicated to training future builders with the skills and expertise needed to build careers for themselves while advancing our industry’s ability to make those dreams come true.
Our philosophy extends to our partnerships, like the one we have with Sackcloth & Ashes. The organization ethically produces beautifully crafted, eco-friendly blankets, and donates a blanket to a local homeless shelter for every blanket purchased by KB Home as a special housewarming gift for new homeowners. Helping those in the most challenging circumstances find shelter and rebuild their lives aligns with one of KB Care’s key focus areas.
