COVID 19 Update

Contact us! We’re here for you!

From March 2020, SAIL has not stopped our ability to serve the U.P. community. SAIL staff have been providing services remotely and as we continually evaluate the current pandemic and follow expert advice, we will hope to be back in full swing soon.

In the meantime, our staff are ready, able and willing to continually provide services for the U.P. community who live with a disability.

During any visit with a SAIL staff, we encourage everyone to wear a mask, to frequently wash their hands and continue to practice social distancing.

If you are unable to wear a mask, please let us know so we can do our best to provide you with an accommodation.

The Final Numbers!

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.
