The health and safety of our residents and staff remain our focus as we address the COVID-19 outbreak. Our staff has and will continue to diligently monitor their health and follow the recommendations from our Commonwealth and the CDC to protect both themselves and our clients.  Our independent living homes are undergoing continuous sanitation activity; small group discussions are being held with residents; proper handwashing signage has been posted; and best practices in health and safety have been implemented.

Following the Governor’s directive of a mandatory statewide shutdown, for the safety of Skill Builders participants, all group activities and outings have been cancelled through June 10th. We remain committed and open to serving our residents for all other services at this time.  If you should need individual support or have further questions, please call us at (757)227-5444.
