Disability
Success Stories 

 

Our Mission:

   To advocate for the rights and empowerment of the people with disABILITIES and to provide needed services to people with disABILITIES in order to increase their self-determination and independence

   Since 1981, SAILS has worked to make San Antonio and the surrounding counties a better place to live, work and play for people with disABILITIES.

Our Philosophy:

    People with disABILITIES have the right to be treated with dignity and respect; the right to live and receive services in their own homes, and to decide for themselves what is the best for them.

    Independent Living is different from other social services in that people with disABILITIES decide what services are needed and the best way to receive those services. This allows individuals more control over their own lives and leads to independence.

 
Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA) Program

The goal of the WIPA project is to enhance SSI/SSDI beneficiaries and their family members' awareness and understanding of Federal, State and local work incentives, and improve their ability to make informed choices regarding work. If you receive SSI and/or SSDI Benefits and you are working, or seriously considering work CWICs will assist with establishing plans and developing long-term supports that may be needed to ensure success. We will also provide periodic follow-up planning services and assess the potential impacts of work and on your benefits.
