SAIL (Steps to Achieve Independent Living Program)
Program Manager: Kellie Jones 480.684.4893
Actively engaging and assisting young adults to discover, articulate and achieve their goals in each of the following domains: Living Situations, Community Integration, Education and Employment. The SAIL program focuses on Transitional Age Youth (16 – 25yrs. old), who are in the GMH/SA system with Title XIX benefits. SAIL also serves people in the SMI system with Title XIX or non-Title XIX benefits.
SAIL can meet the needs of people who may have a difficult time engaging, have little or no work experience, have co-occurring intellectual disabilities and may be enrolled in the DES/DDD system. In addition, SAIL can assist people with difficult or unstable living situations, with difficulty maintaining a healthy/ positive living environment, and who may require engagement and skills training.
Individuals with these challenges are particularly in need of an integrated and comprehensive approach which begins with a concerted engagement focused on current strengths and motivations. SAIL offers a variety of social, recreational and vocational activities and exposure to the possibility of discovery with sustained support through their journey.
