The South Dakota Housing for the Homeless Consortium was created in 2001 to help unify the people who provide services to the homeless. Throughout the years the Consortium has identified gaps and created programs and services that make it easier for people to make it on their own.  Since its initiation, the Consortium has received millions in federal funding to provide development, operations and supportive services to a variety of homeless programs across the state.
