Education & Independent Living Skills Training

SAIL strives to connect all individuals living with a disability with independent living skills training to ensure information, knowledge and power to live a full, productive life.

We all need to make decisions in our own lives, but first we need the information and knowledge that allows those decisions to be good decisions. After all, knowledge is power. Attend these workshops to give an individual knowledge, information and power!

The curriculum we use was developed  by the University of Montana Rural Institute called Healthy Community Living. This program will support opportunities for people with disabilities to live well and participate fully in their communities. It includes two peer-led independent living workshops, Community Living Skills and Living Well in the Community, which are each divided into ten specific content session.
