The completion of a promise thirty years in the making was celebrated recently! In 1982, Black Hills Works (then Black Hills Workshop) supported around 150 people, and finding adequate housing was already an issue. Black Hill Works owned the land at 1212 East St. Cloud Street, but did not have the funds to build on it. That’s when Gateway Partnership stepped in. “I had been a friend of the Workshop for many years.” says Glenn Barber who along with Charles Keown and Bill Baumgartner, both deceased, purchased the land for $22,000, then worked to secure the funding for building an apartment on it. Their friend Ep Howe who was serving on the Black Hills Work’s board was also very involved in what was the first project of its kind; securing HUD (the US Department of Housing and Urban Development) funding for a project built by a private company. Glenn says it took support of then Senator George McGovern to accomplish the job. » read more
