Editorial: People with disabilities make key contributions

It was wonderful to open up my laptop on this beautiful Saturday morning in Beacon Hill, and as I was checking my various go-to online newspapers (The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Quad City Times, and The Rapid City Journal), to stumble upon this guest editorial by Brad Saathoff, CEO of Black Hills Works, one of the nonprofits we have the honor of partnering with. 

It’s in the most common form of introduction when we see the fabric of work woven in to our lives. Beyond your name and where you live, what you do for a living is often the next thing out of your mouth.

It makes sense.

For those who are able and willing, work is often where you not only make a living, but where you pursue your career goals, contribute to society and become part of a community.

That is why Black Hills Works is committed to supporting meaningful employment for people with disabilities.
