BUSINESS WITH A SOCIAL MISSION

Through responsible management and solid corporate partnerships, we create and maintain a stable, rewarding place of work, where persons with disabilities contribute their skills.
TWO BOTTOM LINES
Skills Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is self-funded through our four lines of business. We compete in an open market and receive no government subsidies. Grants and gifts directly benefit our programs.
We train, employ and serve people with disabilities by providing jobs, vocational programs and services that offer life-changing opportunities to thrive at work.
THREE WAYS WE ACCOMPLISH OUR MISSION
By Employing People with Disabilities:
Sixty percent of our 260 employees have a self-identified disability. Our inclusive workforce consists of individuals with a wide range of disabilities. We have a fully integrated work environment where individuals with and without disabilities work side-by-side throughout our four lines of business.
Through Programs and Services:
For high school students who learn valuable skills while earning credit toward graduation.
Matches the skills of part-time employees with specific business needs.
Workplace readiness training for young adults with disabilities.
Offers work-readiness assessments, training, mentoring, job development, community job placement and other services.
Serving as a Role Model and Resource to the Community:
Since 1966, Skills Inc. has focused on the strengths of our workforce. Our goal is to match employees with jobs where they excel, providing high quality and value to our customers. Hiring people with disabilities is directly related to our mission but is also an integral part of our overall diversity strategy.
As our organization continues to evolve we have discovered that collaboration with corporate and community partners is essential to increasing employment outcomes. Upon request, we assist other employers seeking to attract, employ and benefit from a more diverse workforce.
