Because every family deserves a place to call home

Affordable housing changes lives.

Air.

Water.

Food.

Housing.

Few things in life are as important as a safe, affordable place to call home. It affects our ability to find a job, obtain a driver’s license, pay bills, and form friendships. Without a decent place to call home, children’s schoolwork and health suffers, adults' confidence and ability to achieve in the workplace diminishes. Depression and despair become daily companions.


Affordable Housing Solutions Develops Gigglebees Site

In its ongoing effort to create innovative housing solutions for people with limited resources Affordable Housing Solutions is developing the Northwest corner of the old Gigglebees lot. Working in partnership with Lloyd Companies, Citibank, and the South Dakota Housing Development Authority, Affordable Housing Solutions will be building a 31-unit, 4 story building with one, two, and three bedroom units. The development will include laundry in the building, two community rooms for resident use, an elevator, and a small outdoor play area. Rents will be kept low enough to make the apartments affordable for people who make between 30% and 40% of the area median income without the need for a government subsidy. Construction is anticipated to be complete by Spring 2013.
