UCP of Greater Dane County is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit agency. It serves children and adults with a wide range of disabilities, offering in-home therapy for children through its Birth to Three Connections program, childcare support as kids get older, social programs for teenagers and support/resources for adults. The agency also supports families through its respite program. Our family has been touched by UCP in many ways and we are so grateful. Our community is a better place because of the work UCP does!

I have seen firsthand how the services and programs offered by UCP of Greater Dane County positively impact the lives of the families they help. Even the smallest help makes a world of difference to these families and the volunteers and staff as UCP of Greater Dane County care so deeply about their mission and the families they are helping, they truly change lives.

UCP of Greater Dane County serves thousands of people in the community who have disabilities or delays every year. In the nearly 25 years I have been involved with UCP I can truly say they have never lost sight of their mission. This is an organization that demonstrates dedication and intergrity in everything they do.

In the 5 years that I have been involved with UCP of Greater Dane County, both as a volunteer and supporter, I have consistently been moved by the commitment, professionalism and integrity that surrounds this organization.
From the quality of services provided, to the clarity of purpose that infuses the agency, it is obvious that the time and resources I invest with UCP are being used to affect real change in the communities that are served. The sense of engagement I get from that confidence is why I will continue to offer UCP my help and support in the future.

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

Ensure that the agency continues to spread the word as effectively as possible to capture the next generation of community advocates.

I have been involved with UCP for several years now. I often gather up friends and help out with one of their summertime events. The staff are great motivators, constantly reminding us of why we're there and what our help means for the organization. I never doubt that we're making a real difference working with UCP.

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

give them more people to get the word out about what they do. Everyone should know about UCP.
