Enriching Exceptional Lives

 

Skils’kin’s Employment Services works with individuals with disabilities to place them in appropriate jobs in the community, fostering self-sufficiency through employment. The employment programs emphasize building skills, supporting growth, and finding the best fit in the community for each person.

Individual Supported Employment

Places individuals in a traditional job in a community-based business.

Group Supported Employment

Employment is based at a company where four to five individuals work under the direction of a job coach.

Community Access

Supports individuals in developing the skills they need to become independent and build relationships in the community in lieu of employment.

Project Search

Serves school-aged young adults with disabilities who are enrolled in the Spokane School District 81 and interested in the medical field. The program places individuals in internships in a hospital, with the potential to gain employment in the hospital or another field.

Ready for Hire

Skils’kin’s Ready for Hire social media campaign is a means for us to help individuals with disabilities find long-lasting job placements that best meet their needs and skillsets.

 
Referrals:

Typically, individuals served through Skils’kin’s employment services are referred by the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA), and/or Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR).
