Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls and Adams Thermal Systems have celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony for a new home in Canton, South Dakota, the 120th house built by Habitat Sioux Falls. A total of 170 adults and 424 children have been welcomed into new homes since 1991 through the work of Habitat for Humanity, local companies, churches and volunteers.
“Habitat homes are by far the most popular volunteer opportunities that our employees engage in. Providing a home for a local family is particularly significant in a smaller community like Canton,” explains Brian Denny, Human Resources Manager and Habitat.
Homeowners are selected by Habitat based on their need for housing, ability to pay a no-interest mortgage, and willingness to partner with Habitat. Mortgage payments contribute to a Fund for Humanity, which in turn provides money to build more homes.
