Inherent in our name is our location in the beautiful Black Hills of western South Dakota!  Living, learning and working here is an extra benefit of choosing Black Hills Special Services Cooperative as a Community Support Provider. Recreational opportunities are plentiful, from hiking and fishing to enjoying the local recreation centers available in most Black Hills communities.

We partner with the Sturgis Kiwanis in their charter of the Sturgis Aktion Club, which has become a very active service and leadership building organization. Self advocacy groups in both Hot Springs and Sturgis are learning and educating others about the importance of speaking out and advocating for rights protection and full inclusion for all people.

We participate in the annual United Way Day of Caring in Sturgis and the Special Olympics Polar Plunge in Spearfish. In Hot Springs we are the ambassadors for the Hot Springs Chamber, welcoming new businesses to the area with an official ribbon cutting and press release.

People associated with BHSSC volunteer with United Way, Prairie Hills Transit, assisted living facilities, local daycare facilities, animal shelters, Meals on Wheels and more.
