One organization always looking for (and appreciating) RV volunteers is Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit, ecumenical housing ministry. HFH’s vision is: “A world where everyone has a decent place to live.” Its mission is: “Seeking to put God’s love into action Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope.”
RV Care-A-Vanners are individuals who travel in their own recreation vehicles, covering their personal expenses, to Habitat affiliates across the United States and Canada, to help build houses with Habitat families. Each caravan usually lasts two weeks and includes eight to 10 RV units.
Local affiliates that are always looking for traveling volunteers include:
“Lake County, California, will need rebuilds following the California fires, and hopefully those will start in July 2018. Watch the build list. These builds will be open to all Care–A–Vanners.
“Jackson, Wyoming, has posted builds in June, July and September. Although the RV sites are not cheap by Care–A–Vanner standards, they are very reasonable for the area, and it’s a beautiful area to spend a couple of weeks.
“North Platte, Nebraska, has a build for June 24. This is a great little affiliate with terrific partner family participation. The local volunteers are very welcoming to Care–A–Vanners.
“Lansing, Michigan’s event Rock the Block is July 8 and Sept. 9 this year. The RV Care-A-Vanners received good reviews from those that participated last year.
“The build in Adrian, Michigan, on Sept. 2 needs some sign–ups. This has been a great build in the past.”
