Behavioral Health Technician - “A person supported in the Behavioral Health program was just so happy…so smiley and excited! It was the best feeling and I knew this is where I need to be. You know you are making a difference! The training you receive and the team you’ll be working with are phenomenal!"
Direct Support Professional - "I am now able to complete projects in one shift. With increased time spent at work during my scheduled days I am able to better follow through with commitments. I can also better support the people living in my building as they have more consistence throughout the day."
Internal Support Coordinator - "The people that we support at Black Hills Works are AWESOME! They are the reason we come to work every day. The emotions, memories and moments that you create, you can’t get anywhere else. You make a difference every day. There’s no place like it in the world, give it a chance…you won’t regret it!”
Direct Support Professional - "I love my extra days off. I have been much more productive, motivated and involved in the workplace. My teamwork and communication with my co-workers has improved, and I usually look forward to going to work now that I have more time to recharge."
Direct Support Professional (Day Services) - "I value the relationships I have made with the people and staff that I have worked with. I also like the variety...no day is ever the same. For me, the best part is having the ability to support people in the community, and seing them build connections and friendships while volunteering, experiencing and exploring the world around them."
Direct Support Professional - "I have never felt so welcomed into a new job in my life! I can't believe I didn't make the transition sooner, as I truly have been missing out on what work life has to offer. I am both impressed and extremely grateful to have been placed at such a wonderful residential facility. My co-workers and frontline leader put so much effort into personalizing the day to day of each individual supported, and have made sure I felt as if I belonged from day one. I will forever praise the atmosphere BHW has provided to me and for making me excited to go to work for the first time in my life!"
Direct Support Professional - "Everyone is always putting in team effort doing the best they can with the people supported, their families and everyone involved with BHW, including staff."
