Supporting the citizenship of people with disabilities


Skills Society is led by an amazing and dedicated collective of leaders. We’re proud to have leadership that has a strong vision for our organization, and that is willing to take risks with new ideas to improve our services and the lives of the people we serve.

Since 1981 Skills Society has supported people with disabilities in our community. Over 43% of our current staff have been with Skills Society for over five years, a demonstration of both the commitment of our staff and the positive work environment in which they feel supported and encouraged.
