SKIL was created by; is driven by; and is focused on persons with disabilities, their families, and communities. We provide Advocacy, Education, and Support with Customer Controlled services to break down and remove existing barriers and bridge social gaps to ensure and preserve Equality and Independence for all.


Due to the potential spread of the Corona Virus, all SKIL Offices will be closed to visitors and the general public until further notice.

SKIL staff will continue providing services while the offices are closed. Communication, during this time, will take place through phone, email or fax.
If needing to turn in or receive a hire packet and/or other paperwork, we encourage you to send your information by email to your local SKIL office.
When bringing paperwork to SKIL offices during regular business hours, call that office, and someone will come to the door to assist you.

 Thank You for your patience in these extraordinary times!

The Big Tent Coalition and  Kansans for Quality Communities invites you to come and  to share your ideas and stories!

As our state moves into an uncertain future questions we need to ask for example include:
#1. How can we strengthen, and improve upon, our community’s quality resources for Kansans with disabilities of all ages?
This includes all people with disabilities.  Not limited to any disability such as, developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health challenges, the frail elderly, traumatic brain injuries and children with severe emotional disturbances.

#2. How can we strengthen, and improve upon, our community’s investment in quality public education?

#3. How can we best protect, and improve upon, our community’s investment in both a quality public workforce and quality infrastructure?
