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!

Is assistance available for locating accessible housing?

SKIL empowers people to make their own housing choices. The major common categories are HUD housing, individual home ownership and Section 8 voucher housing, though there are other solutions, too. The local and regional housing directory lists agencies that can be contacted for housing assistance in the counties in Southeast Kansas. Individuals who are considering choices for the first time are invited to contact the closest SKIL office for assistance and training.


Can I own a home?

FMHA home loans are available to qualifying individuals. Persons who already own homes and need to make modifications for a disability, such as ramps or wider doorways, have several financing options available, including some waivers, grants and low-interest loans.
