Make an IMPACT this summer - summer job opportunity!

This summer, we are excited to be a part of the AmeriCorps Emergency Response Initiative! This new, statewide initiative has been created to help meet the urgent and emerging community needs related to COVID-19. 

Here at Rice County Habitat, we need 5 people to help us with our builds in Faribault! We don't know yet when we can have volunteer groups and our Go To Crew back on site but we believe we can KEEP BUILDING with the help of these Americorps folks!  

WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SPREAD THE WORD! This is an amazing opportunity for our community and we don’t want to miss the chance to meet urgent needs!

 Would you or someone you know be a great match for this important work?
The positions are 35 hours a week from June 8 - August 15.    

As part of the Emergency Response Initiative, AmeriCorps will provide:

  • A stipend of $650 every two weeks
  • Individual health insurance (monthly premium 100% paid)

  • An additional $1,289.95 for tuition or student loans.  Members who are 55 or older at the start of their service have an additional option. They may choose to transfer the education award to a child, stepchild, grandchild, step-grandchild or foster child. The recipient of a transferred award has 10 years to use it, beginning on the date the member earned the award.

 With a tight turnaround, time is of the essence. In order to begin serving in June, candidates need to apply by May 20. Please share this information in your networks and urge others to apply!

Thank you for helping us leverage this incredible opportunity!

How does Facebook work?
I consider myself to be kind of "techy".  I like that I can impress my mom, in-laws and some, shall we say "folks in a generation older than myself" with my knowledge of computers and all things on line.  My mom still refers to looking things up on the internet as "going IN to the computer" - as if she's crawling into a cave to discover some treasure.

But, I have a confession - I don't know how Facebook works AND I don't want to know how Facebook works.  Jodi, our Volunteer Coordinator, has patiently tried to explain it to me but I'm lost. BUT, I do know Facebook is an important way for YOU to help US share the good work of Rice County Habitat for Humanity.  So, we need YOU to like, or give a thumbs up, or click the heart (whatever) to show YOUR friends that you support our work of building safe, decent and affordable homes locally!

So, I'm pretty sure you can follow, like, love or laugh at us HERE, but you're smarter than I am when it comes to Facebook so I trust you'll figure out how to connect with us!

Habitat 500 goes VIRTUAL!

The 2020 Virtual Habitat 500: Bike @ Home celebrates the 28-year history of the Habitat 500 Bike Ride while participants bike in their own communities. In 2020, we invite participants to cycle any time between registering and September, for as many miles as they would like! Each rider pays a registration fee and also raises funds from family, friends, businesses, and church groups and designates the Habitat for Humanity affiliates they wish to support (both locally and around the world). 

During the week of July 12 - 18, online events and activities will be held for riders to participate in.  

This ride is coordinated and hosted by Habitat for Humanity of Minnesota.

Registration Fee: $50

Fundraising: There are no fundraising minimums this year. We suggest a minimum of $250 for those new to the event. For more experienced fundraisers, set your own minimum: $500, $1,000, or more!

Here's why Dave Wolf, a Go To Crew Member with Rice County Habitat, rides in the Habitat 500:
