Enriching Exceptional Lives
In 1970, concerned parents, family members and business leaders in Spokane organized the Pre-Vocational Training Center to provide services to Spokane-area adults with developmental, physical and mental disabilities. In 2004, the company name was changed to Skils'kin, a Native American word that means "a place where a person goes to seek personal identity and self-empowerment." Skils'kin is a community-based, not-for-profit agency. Working with national and local businesses, we are able to assist people with a wide variety of disabilities to become more self-reliant and economically self-sufficient.
