ACCESS for ALL!
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. Our staff will assist you with learning more about the types of challenges or barriers that individuals living with all types of disabilities face in the community. Your business or organization will gain a working knowledge of best practices regarding how to ensure all individuals are welcomed and can access all aspects of your work or products to improve your bottom line and guarantee improved success!

Travel Accessibility Resources
While traveling with a disability can be challenging, it can also provide a host of physical and mental benefits. Exploring the world allows a person to expand their horizons, gain new experiences, and change their perceptions. Preparing for plane travel can be a time-consuming endeavor, but with the help of airline representatives, travel agents, and friends or family, those with disabilities can enjoy a safe and fun trip on any airline.
