Social Life

Here, at Skills Unlimited, Inc., we believe that community is a vital part of personal success, as well as the success of our organization. To us “community” means working together to achieve the highest quality of life for every person, regardless of individual disability. For this reason, we strive to provide opportunities in which the people we serve can participate in meaningful ways in their community. These opportunities include, but are not limited to, employment in local businesses, providing services such as canteen and recycling to local businesses, attending, participating, and hosting community events, attending workshops, actively participating in advocacy groups like People First, as well as being personally involved in all the everyday activities that comes with living in a household with other people.

We believe that community is a way of life, not a program. Through our supported living services and supported employment services, we seek to offer the training and experience necessary to maximize community involvement, whether that is through learning how to shop for groceries, working through personality clashes with a house mate or coworker, or practicing a song to be performed at a community event. We all have our disabilities and it is through community that we become whole.
