Repair Affair Application Deadline Extended
***APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE 2020 EVENT***
For many of us, health and a steady income are daily blessings, others are not so fortunate. The Sioux Empire Home Builders Care Foundation is ready to help the local community through an annual program called Repair Affair™. The focus of this one-day event is to make homes more accessible for the elderly or those with a permanent physical disability. Since 1993, volunteers have donated over 6,000 hours by working on 250 accessibility-related projects throughout the Sioux Empire.
Applicants need to own the home (cannot be a mobile home) and need to be either 65 years of age or have a permanent physical disability. Parents of children with permanent physical disabilities are also encouraged to apply. Income guidelines are outlined on the application form. All home repairs must be accessibility related; from large projects such as installing wheelchair ramps, or smaller projects such as grab bars.
Labor is donated by volunteers and materials are purchased through a grant received by the Housing Division of the City of Sioux Falls and the Sioux Empire Home Builders Care Foundation. All projects will be completed one day only on Thursday, August 20, 2020. The event is sponsored by Great Western Bank.
If you or someone you know is in need of accessibility related projects to be completed in their home, please contact the Sioux Empire Home Builders Care Foundation at (605) 361-8322 or visit hbasiouxempire.com/foundation/repairaffair to download an application to apply for the program.
The application deadline has been extended to Thursday, June 11, 2020. Any questions, call the program at (605) 361-8322.
