Access to Affordable Housing

Many families have housing needs. Some are unable to afford safe housing and cannot obtain a conventional or government-assisted mortgage loan to purchase a home. Some are unable to complete needed home repairs. The Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) volunteers provide Habitat for Humanity with the ‘extra hands’ to build and/or repair homes for families in need. RSVP volunteers provide a reliable pool of volunteers with the skills necessary to accomplish the housing projects. As an enrolled RSVP volunteer, you will receive the supportive benefits of being an RSVP member while volunteering.


RSVP partners with a number of Habitat for Humanity Chapters. The following is a listing of current RSVP partner organizations with which you can volunteer.

Habitat for Humanity – Freeborn/Mower

Habitat for Humanity – Rice County

Habitat for Humanity – Steele/Waseca

Habitat for Humanity – Winona County

Habitat for Humanity – Mankato

Habitat for Humanity – Olmsted County
