Advocacy Calendar, Advocacy Contact Information

This website was developed to assist persons in Saratoga, Washington, Warren and surrounding counties to access information about SAIL's advocacy services.

SAIL advocates assist persons with disabilities who have questions or concerns about a variety of issues. We provide information about Medicaid eligibility and benefits, Social Security disability programs, ACCES-VR vocational rehabilitation, architectural barriers, department of social services forms, housing, assistive technology, transportation, long-term care and independent living skills.

Each of our advocates is a peer advocate, which means that we understand how a disability affects lives, because of our own disability or because of the disability in the life of someone close to us.

If you need to discuss one of the issues above please email or call one of the advocates listed below.
