A Word From Our Director
“Welcome to SAIL, Disability Network of the U.P. As the disability resource in the Upper Peninsula, we work with individuals, their families and other local organizations to assist individuals and promote accessible U.P. communities for all. Every year, we help over 3,000 people with disabilities and their families lead more productive lives in the Upper Peninsula. But our efforts don’t just benefit them. We can help everyone, with or without disabilities, who lives in, works in or passes through our community.”
Sarah Peurakoski, Executive Director
