FOCUS: SHELTER
A Roof Over Every Head
At KB Home, 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 to veterans looking to rebuild their lives.
FOCUS: COMMUNITY
Resilient Communities
We're not just building homes, we're creating and growing communities. That's why we invest in the well-being of those who live in our communities, helping to build strong social ties and caring for people in need.
FOCUS: SUSTAINABILITY & ENVIRONMENT
Sustainable Futures
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.
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.

Impactful Partnerships
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.
