Independent Living

Mission: To enable Alabama’s citizens with disabilities achieve their maximum potential.  This mission is reflective of the broad nature of SAIL which serves the disabled population who have disabilities and individuals, who because of the severity of their disability(ies), may not at the present time have the ability to function independently in their home or community or to engage or continue in employment.  SAIL places primary emphasis on the achievement of a suitable goal, which will enable an individual with a disability to live independently in family, community or to engage in employment consistent with their capacities and abilities.  The program is also an advocacy program for persons with disabilities and strives toward a higher quality of life for all individuals with a disability.


To eligible for services:

  • An individual must be severely disabled.
  • The disability must limit the individual’s ability to maintain independence.
  • There must be evidence that the receipt of services will improve the individual’s ability to retain independence.


  • peer support
  • information and referral
  • basic independent living skills training
  • advocacy
  • guidance and counseling
