RCRV Volunteers help Habitat for Humanity build Pope Francis house.
- Written by Jim Vacherlon
Several RCRV members have been involved in helping build houses for Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity. Their most recent habitat project was to help build the Pope Francis house in Cedar Rapids.
Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity (CVHFH) is a nonprofit, Christian housing ministry dedicated to building and rehabilitating simple, decent, and affordable homes in partnership with families in need in Linn and Benton counties. Partner families make a down payment, invest hundreds of hours of sweat equity into the construction of their homes and other Habitat homes, and make monthly mortgage payments on a zero-interest loan. Since 1988, Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity has built or rehabilitated more than 130 homes.

The Wheelchair Ramp Accessibility Program was started in 2004 as an effort to extend the ramp-building done by RCRV for Aging Services clients to the broader community. WRAP became a non-profit corporation in 2009, and has been continuing to grow. For the United Way Day of Caring this year, May 14 and 15, WRAP built six new ramps and removed three old ones no longer needed.
