Getting to Know SKIL Customer Bill Bolinger

by Andy Rausch and Joe Reinecker


Bill Bolinger is a 43-year-old Parsons SKIL customer. Bill’s disability story began in 1988 when he was injured in an automobile accident that left his stepfather dead and Bill with several serious injuries, including many broken bones and a life-altering head injury. The thirteen year old now faced a new and then-unrecognizable life with many new difficulties. He then spent the next year at Meadowbrook Rehabilitation Hospital in Gardner. After being discharged, Bill returned to school at Oswego High School in Oswego. After graduation, he started receiving services from a competing independent living center, where he remained for several years.

Beginning in 1996, Bill became a part of the SKIL family. With SKIL’s assistance, he would eventually lead an independent life, enjoying the same freedoms and success as his able-bodied counterparts. Today Bill owns his own home, which he shares with a roommate. He enjoys spending time with friends and playing video games. His hobbies include collecting aluminum cans, coins, and bottle caps.

“I am thankful for everything SKIL has done for me,” says Bill. “Thanks to their help, I have been able to do many things I might not have been able to do otherwise. I am especially thankful for being able to be a productive member of the community. SKIL and [President and CEO] Shari Coatney have been very good to me over the years. They treat me like family.”
