First Habitat Home Dedicated in 2021

Meet 2021’s first Habitat homebuyers in Greater Sioux Falls. Gbstawi and Helen closed on their Habitat + Thrivent Faith Build home in late February.

The family shared their gratitude for everyone who helped raise funds, walls, and prayers for their new home on 9th Avenue in this recap. It was a very special home dedication for their son, Lamek, coinciding with his 7th birthday. (We included a little surprise for him at the end. 🎉🎈)

This home would not have been possible without the support of many in our community:

  • Thrivent Financial, for their generous partnership through the Faith Build program.
  • The many donors and volunteers who helped fund and build this home.

Every helping hand makes a difference. Your interest, your involvement, and your support are the fuel that powers our work. Thank you for helping us expand homeownership opportunities so that more of your neighbors can experience the peace and safety of owning a home.
