Helping me to become independent to live on my own someday. coming here to Pathways I am doing really well on my skills that I wanted to work on before I came like my money skills , social skills , being independent. I really like it here at Pathways.

My relationship with UCP began a few years ago while volunteering at a fun-filled picnic for the Adult Day Programs. From that day on, I was "hooked" on this super-star organization and the top-notch services and support that it provides to individuals with disabilities and their families. Staff members and volunteers are extremely passionate and consistently go "above and beyond" what is asked of them to ensure that every person can "live a life without limits."

I thoroughly enjoy volunteering at UCP, as each experience is positive and life-changing. Employees and fellow volunteers work hand-in-hand to achieve the organization's mission. My brother has special needs and would not be as successful and independent as he is today without the services and support from an organization like UCP.

UCP has helped us in various ways through their Family Support Services, which are very helpful. We have a six year old son with an autism diagnosis, and their family fun events and parent trainings have helped us not only feel better connected to other families, but has also helped make us feel stronger as parents. The gamut of services is unmatched anywhere else. The staff show a true understanding of what it's like to have a loved one with special needs. They have supported us unconditionally whether it be through educational advocacy, or general support that helps remind that we can overcome any obstacle that comes in our way. ALL of us (not just our son) have greatly benefited from these services!

Our third child has a global developmental delay and we are fortunate to be involved for the last 4 years with UCP central PA. We have attended community events and workshops, SibShops., received advocacy for school placement and other family support services. Our child attends the options program and we are so proud of her achievements. I can't imagine this journey without the support of UCP central PA. We have been able to meet other families and learn from their experiences. We are learning balance and how to have fun and appreciate each of our kids and their different abilities.

I go to UCP’s Sibshops and also Respite night on Fridays. I like Sibshops because I get to be with other kids going through the same thing as me and it's fun. I'm glad i can be at Respite because you can play whatever you want and it's somewhere my brother can go. There is lots of fun stuff to do and they have crafts.

I just wanted to thank you for sending out the bike information back
in July. We could not be more grateful for the wonderful bike that
Maddie received! You have all been so wonderful and accepting of our
family. So thank you again from the bottom of our hearts :)

Both of my children have received services from UCP Central PA and their help has been invaluable to our family. The providers and staff are generous with their time and they truly care about the children (and families!) they are helping!

I have been volunteering for UCP Central PA for over 5 years. I am an active member of the Magic Night Committee, which supports UCP Central PA's annual black tie fundraising effort. Through my involvement with the committee I was able to learn of the wonderful services the organization provides to children and individuals in our community. When our children were born my husband and I signed them up immediately for UCP Central PA’s inclusive day care facility (Capital Area Children’s Center). CACC provides a stimulating and nurturing environment for all of the children it serves.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the organization respond to the needs of the local community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a way to teach more people in the community about the efforts of the organization and the resources it makes available.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Introduced me to more people in the community.
