As we approach the last quarter of 2023, we are reflecting on the progress we've made in our work to empower individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to lead independent lives. We are also reflecting on what we can be doing better, and this year we are focusing on our Residential Support Programs.

At SKILLS, Inc., we firmly believe that "Belonging Starts at Home." Home is not merely a physical structure; it is a sanctuary of independence, growth, and belonging. Stability is just as important to people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) and/or Autism as it is to any of us.

It is where we build relationships, gain skills to live more independently, create memories, and experience the same things that all adults want - safety, comfort, and a sense of place. Everyone deserves safety, security, and belonging. SKILLS is committed to ensuring that people with I/DD or Autism living in Central Maine begin each day belonging in their own community.

Please consider supporting SKILLS this year as part of your giving plan.

With Gratitude,

Kristin Overton
Executive Director, SKILLS, Inc.

Give to SKILLS today

Adults with intellectual disabilities want the same things we all want - a safe home, people who care about them, and a chance to use their skills and abilities.
