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.

HELLO FROM SHARI - May 8, 2020

I hope all of you are doing well, as SKIL staff and I continue to serve you the best we can. As the community works to slowly open back up, people want to know what SKIL is going to do.

Because of the nature of who we are—people with disabilities—and because we serve people with disabilities, we are at high risk in the Coronavirus pandemic. With this uppermost in mind, we want to keep our customers and staff safe as government restrictions ease.

So, we are planning to put precautions in place this month to assist in hopefully reopening our doors in June, with the safety nets we’ve learned about during the pandemic. What will this look like?

The safety nets include re-arranging our front office for social distancing and a possible request for wearing face masks. CRO, our Customer Run Organization that is offered in our Parsons SKIL office, will require some physical changes to be made as well as insuring that we have all of our correct procedures in place. We will also be updating some equipment to be better able to provide continuing services, including virtual technology as well as other efforts that the SKIL team and board of directors deem necessary.

Our most valuable resources and assets are always you, our beloved customers. Even though this is an inconvenience for you, we want to be sure that your needs are put first as we continue to deliver our services. Though things will be somewhat different, your safety and wellbeing must always come first. We will continue to be there for you as we forge ahead into the future.

As always, please contact us if we can be of help or encouragement to you in any way.

Love, Shari
