The Skills Center is built upon relationships—individuals, families, businesses, referral agencies, funders—all working together to increase competitive work opportunities for people with disabilities in our region.
We partner with inclusive-minded, forward-thinking businesses to create our vocational programs. From these partnerships come real opportunities for meaningful, immediate work for our students—and skilled, dedicated workers for our partners. It is a win-win that is positively affecting partners and people throughout the metro area.

Funding Partners and Donors
In addition to vocational partners, we welcome individuals and other businesses who may not have hiring needs but are willing to financially support this new and innovative training program. You can support the Skills Center through capital investments, in-kind donations, entrepreneurial investments with naming rights, scholarship support, and more.

One of the biggest problems we're facing right now is attrition. What we've experienced with the BCI employees so far...the care, the want-to, the concern...it's obvious with them. And the knock-on effect is that it's infectious. Their care, their concern, their passion has had a contagious effect on non-disabled True team members, which is fantastic. — Steve Young, Director of Operations, True Manufacturing
