Recognizing National Disability Employment Awareness Month

This interview originally aired on In the Moment on SDPB Radio.

For National Disability Employment Awareness Month, we talk to a few workers who have built their careers thanks in part to the South Dakota Department of Human Services' Division of Developmental Disabilities.

Austin Dirk in Spearfish works through the Northern Hills Training Center. In Sioux Falls, Andrew Fodness works through DakotAbilities. And Harvey Faith works through Ability Building Services (ABS) in Yankton.

They discuss the connections they've forged with their co-workers, why they take pride in their productivity and how being good workers helps them feel like good community members.
