The mission of ucp of maine is to advance the independence, productivity and full citizenship of people with disabilities who have multiple needs.
Elizabeth levinson center we provide skilled nursing care to medically fragile children with co-occurring intellectual deficiencies. All of these children are highly dependent and are unable to perform even simple adls. Many are unable to afford the care they need.
behavioral health bridges- we offer an early intervention preschool incorporating therapeutic developmental skills for children between the ages of 3 to 6 years old diagnosed with autism and or other disorders. Hct- we offer hct and clinician services in home to children with mental health disorders or developmental delays. This includes doing a clinical assessment to determine needs and developing a plan of care to include goals. The assessment and plan is developed by a clinician. Then a behavioral health professional goes into the home and works on a regular scheduled basis with the client to develop the skills needed to achieve the goals. The goals will help the client gain independence and the ability to function in society. The work of the bhp and the progress of the client are monitored by the clinician.
adult residential ucp manages four (4) mainecare section 21 funded supported living homes in bangor and brewer for adults diagnosed with developmental or intellectual disabilities. These homes offer comfortable, individualized, home-like environments to give residents the greatest level of independence possible while still maintaining their safety. Residents work, attend community programs and events, and stay very involved in the daily responsibilities of managing a home.
dental services were provided to children who could otherwise not afford them.

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.
