Our philosophy is that Skill Building should offer unconditional acceptance that goes beyond the basics- to inspire individuals and help enhance abilities and growth. These programs challenge limitations through positive motivation and determination, allowing for individuals to learn through their abilities by focusing on strengths, providing adventure, exploring and discovery. Skill Building services provides a safe and therapeutic environment that allows individuals to succeed and be a part of something.  Skill building provides individuals with the opportunity to be out in the community, go to paid and volunteer work sites, and build relationships.
