RV Care-A-Vanners

Travel in your RV to a variety of build sites across the U.S.

If the open road calls to you, the RV Care-A-Vanners are for you. This volunteer program invites anyone who travels by recreational vehicle to make Habitat part of your journey, or even your destination.

About the RV Care-A-Vanner program

Make a difference in the lives of those in need of decent, affordable housing by participating in RV Care-A-Vanner building projects in partnership with local Habitats across North America. These local Habitats benefit from the significant skills, energy and enthusiasm of the RV Care-A-Vanners, who in just two weeks can substantially accelerate their building program and raise the community’s awareness of Habitat’s work.

With the RV Care-A-Vanners, you can meet and work with families as they create a place they can call home. You’ll have the chance to meet wonderful volunteers who share the vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Every RV-er is welcome; no experience needed. Check out our volunteer code of conduct (PDF) to see volunteer expectations.

There are other ways to get involved in the RV Care-A-Vanner program beyond the build program. Some RV Care-A-Vanners train to become a part of our Disaster Rebuild Team to help communities rebuild after a disaster. You can also participate in our Collegiate Challenge program where we mentor college students during their alternative school breaks. Other skilled volunteer opportunities are available as well, including serving on the RV Care-A-Vanner desk staff to help manage the program.

Besides hands-on volunteering, our RV Care-A-Vanners have become Habitat advocates. Many of our volunteers speak to churches, civic groups and the media about the importance of safe, affordable housing and the results of poor living conditions.

Office location

The RV Care-A-Vanner manager’s office is now mobile. This transition occurred during COVID, when the office was closed for an extended time. If you would like to visit the area or are just passing through, HFHI maintains a small, full-hookup campground. There is a small building with a kitchen, two bathrooms and a washer and dryer. For reservations, please contact Mary Vandeveld. There is no cost, but donations are appreciated.

Be sure to visit the HFHI office while in the area. It is located in the Clarence Jordan Building at 322 West Lamar Street, just 3 blocks from the RV park. On the office walls, they have a history of Habitat from its beginning and some artifacts to observe. Americus is a quaint Southern town and walking distance from your RV.
