SAIL's creation is rooted in the "Village Movement", a neighbor helping neighbor system developed around the country by seniors who are assisted by other members of their community. SAIL provides members with help going to and from the grocery store and appointments, with simple home repairs, with access to reliable service providers, with organized outings to cultural events, and fun activities such as walking groups, board game and card groups, and more. SAIL membership is open to anyone interested in its services who lives in the 876 and 870 telephone exchanges.
