Rapid City Habitat for Humanity breaks ground on new building

Posted:

The Black Hills area Habitat for Humanity is celebrating 25 years of helping families in the community.

The organization has helped build homes for many families in the Black Hills community.

Now the community has come together to give them a new home.

Crews broke ground on Tuesday on a new 5,000 sq. ft. administration building that will be used to train volunteers and house staff.

Executive director Scott Engmann said that although they have been around for 25 years old, they haven't had their own home as an organization.

"It will be the framework for planning and training to serve the next hundred families in the community," Engmann said.

The project represents an unprecedented partnership between the Black Hills area Habitat for Humanity and the J. Scull Construction, along with the John T. Vucurevich Foundation, First National Bank, Dave Stafford Architecture, Fisk Engineering, Malone Engineering, Alberston Engineering, the National Guard IRC Innovation Readiness Program, and a host of other service providers.

"The main focus is to provide training for our soldiers, at the same time assisting the local community with projects that they need," said 1st Lieutenant Ron Mitchell, who was helping with the effort.

Engmann says this facility will be very important for the hard working volunteers who role up their sleeves and get the work done.

The new building will be hosted on-site next to the ReStore Outlet.

They hope to have the entire job completed by January 2015.
