COVID 19 Update

March 27, 2020 – On March 23rd, Governor Whitmer signed the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order 2020 – 21. At SAIL, we’ve been operating remotely since March 16th, however, some of our front line staff were at the office. Due to this order, we are all now working remotely,

We’re still open to supporting those individuals living with a disability in the U.P. via phone, text, email and videoconferencing. If you have questions, we are here to help!

If you would like to speak to a live person, please call 906-250-2448 or contact your Disability Advocate directly via email. We will still be able to check messages on our regular phone line and will get back to you as soon as possible.

Sincerely,

Sarah Peurakoski, Executive Director

Our Current Project

SAIL strives to be the conduit in making sure all locations, services, and information is accessible to everyone in our community, including people who live with a disability. The Access4All program was designed to provide accessibility support services to any business or organization in any county in the U.P. via a fee for service.

More about this program….

We’re here for you!

SAIL invests in and serves individuals living with disabilities across the U.P. We hope any individual who might need SAIL in the U.P. will use us for peer support, independent living skills building, self-advocacy and gaining the confidence to live their best life! We are here for you! Call us today at 906-228-5744!
