SKIL was created by; is driven by; and is focused on persons with disabilities, their families, and communities. We provide Advocacy, Education, and Support with Customer Controlled services to break down and remove existing barriers and bridge social gaps to ensure and preserve Equality and Independence for all.


Due to the potential spread of the Corona Virus, all SKIL Offices will be closed to visitors and the general public until further notice.

SKIL staff will continue providing services while the offices are closed. Communication, during this time, will take place through phone, email or fax.
If needing to turn in or receive a hire packet and/or other paperwork, we encourage you to send your information by email to your local SKIL office.
When bringing paperwork to SKIL offices during regular business hours, call that office, and someone will come to the door to assist you.

 Thank You for your patience in these extraordinary times!

Samual Burnett, Board Member and Friend - Passed Away 1-22-2020.


Samual got involved with Southeast Kansas Independent Living (SKIL) in 2002. He has served on the Board of Directors for the last 8 years. He always took great pride in representing people with disabilities and assuring that the services they needed in Southeast Kansas were in place.

He was a long time member of Kansas ADAPT. This gave him an opportunity to stand up for people's civil rights and fight for equality for people with disabilities.

Samual joined the Neosho County Disability Coalition in 2013. He served terms as the Chair and Vice Chair of the coalition. The Coalition allowed him to be a part of a peer group that works together to empower one another.

He leaves us some big shoes to fill. He will be missed
