Ongoing building opportunities

Find ongoing building opportunities for RV Care-A-Vanners

Signing up for scheduled builds is encouraged so that the local Habitats have the number of volunteers they need, and scheduled builds also provide the opportunity for Care-A-Vanners to build with other Care-A-Vanners. However, sometimes there are no organized builds in the area where you are traveling at the right time for your schedule.

Below is a list of local Habitat for Humanity organizations who have contacted the Care-A-Vanner desk to let us know that they welcome Care-A-Vanners to drop in and volunteer. 

Most of these local Habitats provide tools, but it’s best to come prepared with the basics. Full-time construction supervision may not be available on site at all times, and lunches are generally not provided. You may be working alone, with other RV Care-A-Vanners or with local volunteers.

If you elect to do a drop-in, here are a few pointers to know:

  • All Care-A-Vanners are required to be fully vaccinated by Jan. 1, 2022 in order to participate in a build.
  • You can’t drop in if there is already a scheduled build going on at that location.
  • If you are the first contact that the local Habitat has had with Care-A-Vanners and they might be interested in hosting, refer them to the RV Care-A-Vanner desk.
  • You will likely need to find your own RV parking and pay for your parking. 
  • Always contact the local Habitat ahead of your planned visit to find out what their work schedule is and be sure they have work for you. 
  • When you move on, be sure to report your hours to the RV Care-A-Vanner desk.
