Donor Support

"It does my heart good to know that my contributions are really helping to make that kind of impact in their lives.' — Janet Kahler, Donor

Thanks to the charitable support of donors like you, lives are transformed each and every day at Black Hills Works, a nonprofit organization supporting nearly 600 people with disabilities in our community.

Every donation we receive has a direct impact in their lives. The gap between the costs reimbursed by the government and the real costs to provide care and supports is significant. Simply, it is only because our caring community of donors – like YOU – that we have been able to provide highly individualized care to every individual we support for more than 62 years.

Together we will continue to change lives! Thank YOU!
