People First Advocacy Group
People supported at Black Hills Works are encouraged to speak for themselves regarding the issues affecting their lives. People First is a national organization which gives them the opportunity to learn and practice this skill. Our local chapter meets regulary and has hosted several state-wide advocacy conferences. They also engage with the local and state government to provide education and advocacy for disability issues.
