Reviews for UCP Central PA
Our daughter uses the respite program at Branch Creek Neighbors in Shippensburg, PA, and we are very thankful for that program. Our daughter enjoys being with the kind staff members that stay with her and my husband and I feel secure, knowing she is safe and happy for the weekend.
I love coming here to Pathways a new program at UCP because to learn new things like how to use money in different ways. 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 :)
