Skills Society supports people with disabilities, their families, and communities.
Through services and innovative projects, we work to help people with disabilities experience meaningful lives as valued citizens.
Many people with disabilities live on the margins of our communities, often in isolation, and are not offered the same opportunities most citizens are afforded.
Skills Society provides support services to children and adults with developmental disabilities, survivors of acquired brain injury, and their families.
Communities benefit when people with disabilities are provided stable, individually tailored services, housing and support. When people are supported to realize their full potential, they can contribute their skills, knowledge and gifts to the mosaic of talents and personalities that make our communities strong and healthy.
“We battled for years to find the right environment for Robin. She just didn’t fit into the mould that had been established for the delivery of services. Until we came to Skills Society. They have made all the difference.”
– Bob Adams, Skills Society beneficiary

“I think it’s important that we focus on supporting the citizenship of people with disabilities, because we still live in a society that doesn’t truly value that everyone has something meaningful to contribute.”
