Welcome to the Kasson-Mantorville Habitat for Humanity website.

"Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope."
(Habitat for Humanity mission statement.)

Kasson-Mantorville Habitat for Humanity is a partnership with Rochester Area Habitat for Humanity (RAHH) and the Dodge County Thrivent Financial chapter.  We thank the entire K-M and surrounding community for tireless support and generous donations of time, services, and money that went into building and repairing local homes as a hand-up to hard working families. 

Welcoming the Van Every family

The 2016 Mantorville Build
is Complete!

On Saturday, December 17'th 2016 we welcomed the Van Every family to their new ‘forever home’ in Mantorville.  We all enjoyed working side by side with the Van Everys who were involved with every aspect of their home build.  We look forward to seeing them again in the spring when KMHH will be back to lay sod.

Recently completed and ongoing projects include:

Julie's house March 2016

  • House #3: Completed and dedicated a third KM Habitat home in Kasson in December 2014.  (See the stories and slideshows for all three KM homes below.) 
  • During the summer of 2015 the Kasson-Mantorville Steering Committee completed its first “A Brush With Kindness” project for a busy local mother raising two kids on her own while working three jobs. In partnership with Dodge County Faith in Action, K-M Habitat for Humanity helped this family fix up an overgrown yard and out-of-control landscaping at their existing Kasson home.  Just a like a house build, the family was required to contribute sweat equity and to pay back the basic costs. 
  • Re-purposed!  The original family in home #2 in Mantorville moved on in early fall 2015 due to positive changes in their lives.  The KMHH committee and RAHH decided to keep this as a Habitat home, so a new family was chosen, and on March 12’th 2016 this home was dedicated to Julie Tangen and her 3 children.  There were plenty of updates to do (paint, flooring, counter tops, etc.) and Julie and family were required to contribute the same number of sweat equity hours as for a new build.  Please see the slideshow on this page.  (If the slideshow does not play click here to view the photos.)

Habitat for Humanity works to eliminate poverty housing by providing responsible home ownership opportunities in partnership with working families. Partner families purchase homes from Habitat with a no-profit mortgage.  Please contact Habitat for Humanity at (507) 252-0849 or you are interested in donating your time, materials, or funds to support his mission.
