Rapid City, SD (KEVN) Habitat for Humanity has been helping families in the Black Hills since 1990 and on April 16th they dedicated their 100th home to a local family.
It also marked the second home in the Garfield Green district to be dedicated to a family that has committed their time to learning about fiances and life goal setting, as well as building the home themselves. According to Scott Engmann, the executive director of Habit for Humanity, the Garfield project hopes to bring in 250,000 dollars in property taxes over the next 10 years.
And the excitement of a family moving into their new home isn't lost on those at Habitat.
Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity, Scott Engmann says, 'I can never get over the joy that I see in people's faces when they get the key.And they get that chance to start owning a home. What blows me away is how much they are wiling to work beyond their 40-50 hours a week at their normal jobs.'
According to Engmann there are 160 families on the wait-list for a Habitat home. If you are interested in helping build a home with Habitat for Humanity. you can contact them at (605) 348-9196 and speak to Kimberly.
