Campus on East Bank Campaign

The Campus on East Bank Campaign is a fundraising campaign to support the creation and development of a facility offering multiple LSS services, including Center for New Americans, Center for Financial Resources, Counseling Services, Mentoring Services, Fatherhood & Re-entry Services and possibly LSS administration.

The Campus on East Bank Campaign will allow LSS to purchase the Kilian Community College property adjacent to the Big Sioux River on 6th Street in downtown Sioux Falls and relocate services. The building will be fully refreshed inside and out and will contribute to the amazing redevelopment happening downtown.

Permanent Home for Community Services
The high cost of leased space is not an efficient use of financial resources. Location, easy access to public transportation and adequate on-site parking are vital.

Availability for Our Clients
Visibility and accessibility are important. Being in the heart of Sioux Falls ensures ease of access to services. 

Safe, Professional & Welcoming
Our services are about building trust around events that have made people vulnerable. A campus-like setting is more efficient and economical to operate and the interconnectivity among services is invaluable.

Building Quality Workforce for Sioux Falls
The Campus on East Bank will provide the necessary space to meet current and future classroom needs. Enhanced education programming will better equip individuals for self-sufficiency and success.

Efficient & Economical
A campus setting will allow for better utilization of our financial resources by eliminating duplication of expenses on maintenance, energy usage, instructional technology, classrooms and meeting spaces. The property footprint also provides adequate space for the future growth.

Financial Sustainability
We serve people of all ages, faiths, races and socioeconomic levels. Financial sustainability is dependent on serving a mix of clients, some of whom have the capacity for private payment, and on our ability to compete in this marketplace.

The success of Sioux Falls is rooted in its ability to apply love, compassion and economics to solve the needs of its community.
