May 16, 2015 from 9 am to 2 pm, rain or shine, at Legion Memorial Park in Hollidaysburg, PA. For more information, please visit the Discovery Garden web page.

Skills of Central Pennsylvania has a new look!

Team Trivia Challenge

Through a strategic planning process, Skills of Central Pennsylvania reviewed the meaning and appearance of the logo used for decades. The logo should tell a story about the purpose of the organization through a picture. Our picture logo now reflects the feeling of the organization. We are a person-centered organization, reaching for the stars, as we support individuals with intellectual disabilities and mental health diagnoses.

We will continue to use Skills of Central Pennsylvania for business transactions but to the public will simply use the name Skills.

While we have a new name and logo, our high quality of programming, innovation, and drive to meet community needs has not changed.
