Director’s Letter

From the desk of R. Scott Engmann
Executive Director

Welcome to Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity.

It is our sincere desire that this online resource is helpful to you. Our belief at Black Hills Area Habitat for Humanity is that when everyone pulls together in their areas of strength, and applies even a small amount of faith, mountains can be moved. We have witnessed this since 1990, as members of the Black Hills communities have pulled together from all faiths, all neighborhoods around a simple call to help a hard-working family have a simple, decent, and affordable place to call home.

We take our mission of eliminating poverty housing very seriously, not only as we build new and renovate existing homes, but as we advocate for just practices that will assist the hard-working members of our community who need that hand-up so they can sustain themselves. As part of the global movement of Habitat for Humanity International, we celebrate that this same mission is being accomplished on six continents of the world, having impacted over 1.75 Million people.

For every hour and every dollar you commit to our mission, we pledge ourselves to monitor and evaluate our process to best leverage these resources for the deepest impact for those earning between 30-60% of the median income, making safe shelter a matter of conscience and practice.

We understand that you may have questions that are not addressed through the web resources. Please contact us and know that your insight is critical to the improvement of our online material. I am always eager to meet new Habitat supporters, and welcome ideas for increasing our impact through our collective vision.

I hope to see you soon!
Scott Engmann
