Our Story…

The SAIL Foundation was launched by parents of young adult men with disabilities and supportive members of our community. “Our boys” have difficulty maintaining employment and social contacts. Their high-functioning abilities make it difficult for them to engage successfully in typical support service programs.

 SAIL clients face challenges associated with a variety of disabilities such as Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder (PTSD),  Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Aspergers Syndrome, which is on the Autism Spectrum. 

Because neurological disabilities are not always obvious, the unique needs of this group are often overlooked and frequently misunderstood in society. Most individuals in this group go through life with the least amount of help from our communities.

As a result, parents take on the role of provider, counselor, job coach, and even chauffeur. As the parents age, this question looms large:

“What will they do when we are gone?”

Our desire is to develop a self-sustaining program that will empower SAIL Foundation clients toward independent living before their parents are no longer able to care for them.

  • TBI and Aspergers rates are statistically higher for males than they are for females

  • Only 16.% of people with disabilities are employed

  • In U.S. communities, victimization is 4—10x more likely to affect those with disabilities
