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, in partnership with Rochester Area Habitat for Humanity (RAHH) and the Dodge County Thrivent Financial chapter, completed and dedicated a third Habitat home in the KM community in December 2014.  Many thanks to the entire community for tireless support and generous donations of time, services, and money that went into building these homes.  See the story and slideshow for each of the three KM homes below.

Also the KM Habitat team has been keeping busy since the dedication of KM house #3.  Recently completed and ongoing projects include:
  • During early August 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.  This project represents a significant expansion of Habitat’s ministry to include repair and fix-up needs of families who have a home but lack the resources to take on these projects.  Just a like a house build, the family is required to contribute sweat equity and to pay back the basic costs. 
  • We’re recycling!  The original family in home #2 in Mantorville has moved on due to positive changes in their lives.  The KMHH committee and RAHH decided to keep this as a Habitat home, so a new family has been selected and work is underway to make this house like new again.  Julie Tangen and family are contributing sweat equity just like any new family and will also pay back the home cost via a no-profit mortgage.  Work underway includes a complete refresh of paint, some flooring, kitchen counter tops, and overall clean-up.
  • 2016 build!  The KMHH committee is actively working to acquire a lot in either Kasson or Mantorville and is in the process of family selection for KM house #4!  Check back for updates and more details.

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.
