The services I've received through UCP of Maine are very beneficial to helping make my daughter as independent as possible; without them we wouldn't be where we are today. My daughter is eighteen now it's great that this service can continue into her early twenties. There's so many cuts to services for young adults we need to keep having support after leaving childhood.

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

ways that my daughter has gained knowledge in the community. She has serviced hands on support with her worker for a few years now. She now can be safe when out in the public. Her fear of police, and other emergency personnal has changed to trust.

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

give them more power to do what they need to do; this would give with the power to transport the clients in the community so they could learn even more socially. Without this parents work is affected,because they need to do the transporting.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The care given to my daughter, and always being included in the decisions.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very knowledgable and caring.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

benefit their clients and not have to pass on the cuts to their workers or families of their clients.

Ways to make it better...

their employees could have freedom in transporting the child in public without causing the parent to use work.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the cut backs.

One thing I'd also say is that...

we greatly appricate their services without them independence for some adults and children would be unreachable.
