Services Offered 

Supported Community Employment on Location

We have business partnerships where crews of participants are led by support staff to complete needed services on location.  Hotel housekeeping, janitorial, and assembly and packaging are a few examples of the types of services these crews provide.  Assessment, training, and ongoing support are the benefits of this vocational option.

Federal Contracts

Black Hills Works provides job opportunities for adults with disabilities as it fulfills federal contracts.  Many of these contracts are based at Ellsworth Air Force Base. We support the Postal Service Center, Official Mail Center, supply store, Commissary, food services at Raider Café, and janitorial needs.  

We also have a contract with the Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha, NE.  We support the Commissary and food service at King Dining Facility, along with rehabilitation services and transportation services to the employees in Omaha.  

Independent Community Employment

Our employment support staff can help participants receive the assessments and on-the-job training needed to prepare them for a job in a community business.  Through our business partnerships, we have the opportunity to match people to available positions and provide intermittent follow-up support to maintain independent employment.

Project Skills is a paid work experience program for high school students with disabilities; providing students with opportunities to learn different employment skills in a variety of job placements.  The work experience can last from a minimum of 30 hours to a maximum of 250 hours annually.
