Community business ventures with a purpose

Business ventures of Black Hills Works have varied widely during our 60-plus year history. From a sawmill and a farm in the 70s to an art gallery and electronic recycling service today, our enterprises continue to evolve.

Today, we operate five Rapid City businesses that employ people with disabilities, offering them a supportive environment while earning an income.
