Traveling Habitat for Humanity volunteers are in La Crosse to help build house

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — Habitat for Humanity volunteers who travel throughout the county in RVs to build Habitat projects have parked in La Crosse to work on a house.

The traveling carpenters, whom Habitat for Humanity International labels Care-A-Vanners, are laboring on a house for Andrea.

“When I think about a home, I think about love, family, laughter, growth and having a place where you feel safe,” said Andrea, who noted she has dreamed of having a place her family could call its own.

“I wanted them to have a place where they could grow up in for many years and be able to know that the house we lived in was our home because we shared all our memories, laughs, tears and everything in between in that home together as a family,” she said.

The home is expected to be completed within a few weeks, Habitat officials said.
