What is SPAR?
SPAR stands for Single Point for Activities and Recreation. SPAR is a new program at SAIL created in the summer of 2009. It has developed numerous social and recreational activities in pursuit of inclusive community events. SPAR targets all community members to be more active in their independent living. Those who benefit from a SPAR activity have met new people and begun to create a higher quality of life and valued leisure lifestyle.
