About Us

Who We Are

Skils’kin is a community-based, nonprofit organization that provides employment services to adults with disabilities, helping them grow and thrive within the community. Through these collaborative services, we help individuals with disabilities find meaningful employment and effectively manage their financial resources, promoting integration and, ultimately, a top quality of life in the process.

We directly employ individuals with and without disabilities to provide products and services for business and the government through our Commercial Services and our AbilityOne Contracts in Washington, Montana, and Wyoming. We also place individuals with disabilities in jobs in the community through our comprehensive Employment Services department. In addition to these employment services, we also provide representative payee services through our Payee Services department.
