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!

Shari’s Update - March 20, 2020

SKIL is continuing to provide services while having our doors closed to walk in services but we have the numbers and emails of the office posted on the door. We are not requesting signatures on any plans.

We have some administrative staff working from home while other continue to work at the offices. We are going through training on new ways of thinking and new IL skills training for many of our customers , such as ordering from Amazon and Wal Mart.

We are sending out plain language information on the virus and safety plans to all customers as well as care providers. Staff will start making calls to all our customers to offer assistance and assure they are getting what they need as well as offering resources that maybe available.

We also plan on taking this time to go over and retrain staff on some of the basics. We plan on starting that training in week 3 of this new way of service delivery.
If you have any questions about this plan please feel free to ask but know as this situation changes our plan is likely to change to meet new needs.
