United Way of the Black Hills
We unite people and resources to improve lives in the Black Hills by delivering measurable long-term solutions to community issues in education, financial stability, and health.
We will be champions of our community, empowering individuals and improving lives, while striving to facilitate lasting, positive change.
Service Area: Black Hills region of South Dakota including the counties of Butte, Lawrence, Meade, Pennington, Custer, and Fall River
We work to ensure children enter school ready to learn and graduate on time. We work to reduce poverty, increase access to affordable housing, and give families the tools they need to prosper. We work to stabilize families in crisis by providing food, shelter, emergency assistance, and promote overall healthy living. We accomplish these goals by strategically partnering with nonprofits, government, schools, and business to understand the needs in our community and identify the short and long term solutions to address these needs. Funding is invested in various nonprofits serving Rapid City and the greater Black Hills community who are able to implement the solutions. By bringing these entities together, United Way is able to orchestrate greater impact than any one organization could accomplish alone.
