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. It’s in our power to change everything, from individual lives to the wider community. Every year, we help over 1,000 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.”

Kindest Regards,
Sarah Peurakoski, Executive Director

Our New Commercial!

You may not know it, but one in five of your U.P. neighbors live with a disability. Every day, SAIL provides services and community based programs for people who live with invisible and visible disabilities. Last year we are proud to have raised almost $30,000. You can help us to reach our goal this year of $35,000 to support these programs.

Every dollar makes a difference!
