About Habitat

Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls builds and preserves homes with and for people in need. We serve the counties of Minnehaha, Lincoln and Turner.

  • We have built or rehabilitated over 160 homes since our inception in 1989, helping 246 adults and 637 children!
  • We have completed over 175 Neighborhood Revitalization and A Brush With Kindness projects since 2010.

Studies show owning a safe, affordable home impacts the health of the family members, improves children’s grades, and leads to more successful long-term goals and dreams, as well as broadens the tax base in a community.

Our mission is focused on 3 programs:

About the Homeownership Program

Homeownership applicants participate in a stringent application process that takes several months for our Selection Committee to complete. If an applicant qualifies and is selected, they are invited into partnership. Homebuyer partner households must complete 300 sweat equity hours, including construction labor and homebuyer education classes, before they can purchase their Habitat home. Habitat finances our home sales, providing loans that are affordable for the homebuyer.

If you are interested in becoming a homeowner and struggling to achieve homeownership through conventional means, visit our Homeownership page to learn more about our program.

About the Neighborhood Revitalization Program

Homeowners interested in our Neighborhood Revitalization (NR) program also follow an application process. The condition of the owner-occupied house is surveyed and the preservation needs compared to the services we offer. The homeowner reimburses Habitat Sioux Falls for the materials and agrees to partner with the volunteers on work day. Visit our Neighborhood Revitalization page to learn more.

About the ReStore

A third way Habitat supports affordable, stable housing is through our ReStore. We sell new and gentle used building materials and home goods that have been donated by individuals and corporations. The store is open to the public and sells the items at about 30–40% of retail. Learn more about the ReStore.
