Black Hills Works is thrilled to announce the release of its new career website, aimed at providing prospective employees the tools they need to learn more about what it means to be a direct support professional (DSPs). It’s a career that is life-changing, both for the DSP and the people they support.
Simply, DSPs are at the heart of what we do at Black Hills Works. They help adults with disabilities live, work, and play. They work in homes, at jobs, and within the community, helping the people we support to achieve their goals and overcome various challenges they face. DSPs play a critical role in helping to empower and equip adults with disabilities receiving services with the opportunity to lead independent, meaningful, and full lives. Through person-centered approaches that promote self-determination, the responsibilities of a DSP are vast. This work can include providing support for relationship-building, financial management, personal care, household tasks, transportation, communication, advocacy, and so much more. It’s a job that is intimate and transformational for both you and the people you support. They are so important to the mission of Black Hills Works, we provide robust on-the-job training, leadership development, certifications, and credentialing opportunities to provide opportunities to build skills and income potential.
