Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity (RRVHFH) was organized in December, 1988. Groundbreaking for the first Habitat home in the Dakotas was in June, 1989. There have been 22 Habitat homes built in Grand Forks, one home in East Grand Forks, and two rehabbed homes completed since 1989.
RRVHFH’s mission is based on the vision of developing partnerships between churches, business and concerned individuals to assist hardworking low income people to build and own their own homes. The vision is founded on the Christian belief that sharing one’s material wellbeing multiplies the ministry of love, justice and goodness throughout the world.
Habitat is committed to the development and uplifting of families and communities, not only to the construction of homes. Habitat for Humanity builds, renovates and repairs simple decent and affordable housing for people who are living in inadequate housing and who are unable to secure adequate housing by conventional means.
Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and the day to day operations are overseen by a part time Executive Director. RRVHFH relies on donations and volunteers from individuals, corporate groups, students and youth groups, and faith groups.
We are currently seeking committed volunteers to serve on our committees and help with builds. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
