Ben Osborn Memorial Fund

Ben Osborn Memorial Fund. Helping Local Children With Need In The Tri-County Region

I would like to take a moment to tell you about a special memorial fund that wants to “give kids a little lift”. The Benjamin D. Osborn Memorial Fund, Inc. has been founded as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization aimed to support youth with “NEED”. This fund was created in loving memory of CPL Osborn who was killed in Afghanistan, June 15, 2010, while serving in the United States Army during Operation Enduring Freedom. It is our mission and hope that the values being learned, such as discipline and pride, will be encouraged and passed on through Ben’s legacy. As he taught us through example and selfless sacrifice, we simply wish to do our part by “giving kids a little lift” in honor of Ben’s memory. As the man who planted the seeds within our hearts that inspired us to do so, we wish to carry on his legacy and make him proud.

The positive impact that Ben made in life continues in death through this fund. The fund is aimed at helping children in need, age 5 through 18. Modest assistance can be provided in the form of items such as: school supplies, tutoring services, winter clothing items, field trip admission expenses, electronics, musical instruments and classes, eyeglasses and more!

No monetary assistance is available except in the form of Senior Scholarships that are administered in June.  Teachers, coaches, school nurses, guidance counselors, Athletic directors, and School Administrators may refer a child in need.

Southern Adirondack Independent Living Center. Helping people live more independently.

SAIL helps people live more independently.

This statement signifies the importance of the work we do at SAIL. Our pledge is to continue to do our best in serving the community, and to ensure each individual we serve receives the help they need. SAIL has the ability to restore hope and change people’s lives, therefore, we want everyone in the community to know who we are and how to find us. Please help spread the word by telling your friends and neighbors about the good work that SAIL does. In our everyday work, SAIL promotes the independence, equality and dignity of people with disabilities in all aspects of personal and community life. For people with disabilities and their families, Independent Living means knowing what services and supports are available; having the ability to choose the services that are right for each person, family and lifestyle; and taking responsibility for personal choices and actions.

As an independent living center we are cross-disability, non-residential, provide core services towards independence, and are consumer controlled. Cross-disability means we serve people with different types of disabilities. As an ILC we don’t have residential housing as service. We provide the core services of an ILC information and referral, peer services, independent living skills, advocacy for individuals and in the community, and help with life transitions.

Finally, as consumer controlled we employ and are represented on our board at least fifty-one percent of people with disabilities. Services provided through SAIL enable people of any age with disabilities to gain control over their lives. As a non-profit corporation, we welcome you as a partner in independence and thank you for your support.
